David McCullough, a two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning author and recipient of the National Book Award, discusses a selection of American paintings and sculptures in the Corcoran Gallery of Art collection, now part of the National Gallery of Art. In this interview filmed in 2013 at McCullough’s Martha’s Vineyard home, the author of The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris provides enlightening commentary on American art and history as seen through the lens of works included in a 2013–2014 Corcoran installation titled American Journeys: Visions of Place. Many of these works will go on view in the American and European galleries beginning in May 2015. The film is made possible by the HRH Foundation.
