Tea & Talk - John White Alexander:
An American Gilded Age Artist

Ventfort Hall

104 Walker St., Lenox, Massachusetts

Image courtesy Ventfort Hall

Considered on a par with John Singer Sargent and William Merritt Chase, the once acclaimed portrait painter John White Alexander is especially recognized for his figure paintings of women striking evocative poses and elaborately arranged in flowing gowns. Art historian and Alexander author Mary Anne Goley will introduce us to the artist’s career and his exceptional talent for movement and gesture. She fortunately had early access to the untouched Alexander estate for her book.
