John La Farge and the Travelogue:
an illustrated talk by Dr. James L. Yarnall
Tuesday, March 8, 2011
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Munroe Special Collections Room
McKillop Library, Salve Regina University
A reception will follow the presentation.
Dr. James L. Yarnall, a leading authority on John La Farge and Associate Professor in Salve’s Department of Art, will give a presentation on La Farge’s illustrated travel writings on Tuesday, March 8, from 4:00-5:00 PM in the Munroe room of McKillop Library. A reception will follow the presentation.
John La Farge, better known for his stained-glass masterpieces, was also a painter, muralist, decorative artist, and writer. During the summer of 1886, at the age of fifty-one, La Farge accepted an invitation from an old friend—the famous historian Henry Adams—to tour Japan for several months. A second trip with Adams was a fifteen-month tour of the South Seas, including Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti, Fiji, Indonesia, and Ceylon. These trips set in motion ambitious illustrated travelogues that in various forms occupied the artist for the next decade.
