Opening Reception: The Story of the Revolution
January 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us to celebrate the opening of our newest exhibit.
In 1898, Henry Cabot Lodge published his book, “The Story of the Revolution” in which he tells the history of the Revolutionary War. For this two volume book, Lodge commissioned a handful of artists to create images illustrating visual content for specific passages in the book.
Drawn entirely from the Historic Beverly collection, “The Story of the Revolution” in Beverly brings together the first edition of Lodge’s book and two dozen of the original paintings that were commissioned for the publication.
The “Story of the Revolution” in Beverly exhibit explores the artists, the text and the history of the time of the Revolutionary War in Beverly and the Nation.
