Curators Tour: ‘Iterations’ at New Bedford Free Public Library

Repeats: July 11, 2024 and August 8, 2024

What is an original work of art? How can a painting transform when it’s in a different medium? In what ways does an image transform when recreated by a different artist?

Led by Alexandra Copeland, Art Curator at NBFPL, this tour examines the transformative nature of art — From James Smillie’s engraving after Albert Bierstadt’s “The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak,” itself a later version of the library’s “Sunset Light, Wind River Range of the Rocky Mountains” to Louisa Ricketson’s painted copies of JMW Turner’s scenes of Venice, ‘Iterations’  includes  a variety of artworks and pieces that inspired them.
