Peek into Paintings — AUGUSTINE KOBBE

May 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Close up of the painting “Bark AUGUSTINE KOBBE of Searsport entering Leghorn Jany 22 1880,” Luigi Renault, 1880 (438)

While the bark AUGUSTINE KOBBE was in port at Livorno, Italy in early 1880, Captain Ford commissioned this painting. Where did the bark go after Livorno? What was it carrying? Who’s on board? In Parts I and II, we’ll take a close look at the painting. Then in Parts III and IV we’ll draw connections between what we see and the history the painting represents. Tune into Facebook or YouTube every Friday or wait until the end of the month to watch all the videos together.

Free on Facebook & YouTube.
