Cruising With The Commodore

The Japan Society of Fairfield County (JSFC) is sponsoring a talk by Vernon Beck, Vice-President of JSFC at the Cos Cob Library at 5 Sinawoy Rd, Cos Cob, CT 06807. His presentation, Cruising with the Commodore, will start at 2 PM on Saturday, March 30, and will end with a question and answer period.

The talk is based on the artwork included in the official report of Commodore Perry’s expedition to open Japan in the 1850s. Perry had a team of artists on the expedition. The artist Eliphalet Brown will be featured, who was also the expedition’s official Daguerreotypist. He took the first photographs in Japan and is buried in nearby Ridgefield, Connecticut.
