You Don’t Know Jack (and you’re not alone): Rediscovering John Leslie Breck
Jonathan Stuhlman, Ph.D., Senior Curator of American Art, The Mint Museum

Even for those familiar with American art, the name John Leslie Breck (or Jack, as he was known to his friends) may not ring any bells. For although Breck was integral to the development of American Impressionism, and has historically made brief appearances in books and exhibitions on the topic, until now there has been neither a retrospective of his work or publication about him. This talk will trace Breck’s artistic development over the course of his brief career, placing him within the context of American art of his time.
