A lecture on ‘Trees in Art” will be held at the Noah Webster Library in West Hartford, 20 South Main St., on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m.

Trees have inspired artists for ages.Explore the works of artists in the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, including: Charles De Wolf Brownell’s iconic, The Charter Oak, a symbol of American independence; Georgia O’Keeffe’s The Lawrence Tree, where we can imagine a private refuge; and Marc Chagall’s Autumn in the Village, with exuberant color that intertwines the visible world and the interior world.

Slides of art depicting trees from the Museum’s permanent collection will be shown and discussed. This program is also made possible with generous funding from the Thomas F. Kilfoil Memorial Bequest.
