“Story of the Revolution” in Beverly Final Weeks
September 22, 2020 @ 9:30 am - October 2, 2020 @ 4:00 pmFree
Once in a lifetime opportunity!
In 1898, Henry Cabot Lodge published his book, “The Story of the Revolution” in which he tells the history of the Revolution War. For this rich, scholarly two volume book, Lodge commissioned a handful of artists to create images that would reflect the visual content for specific passages in the book. These select artists did not draw or illustrate the images that Lodge requested, they painted the images in full; paying attention to every detail in their brushstrokes. Drawn entirely from the Historic Beverly collection, our current exhibit, “The Story of the Revolution” in Beverly brings together the first edition of Lodge’s book and 26 of the original paintings that were commissioned for the publication.
For the last weeks of the exhibit, all 44 of the paintings commissioned for Henry Cabot Lodge’s “The Story of the Revolution” will be on display at the Cabot House. As part of our Covid protocols, we will be offering timed tickets. Admission is free, but capacity is limited. Parties larger than 4 will not be permitted.
