Impressionist to Modernist

 

  Impressionist to Modernist:
Masterworks of Early Photography

February 21–April 19, 2015

This exceptional group of photographs by major artists working in the circle of Alfred Stieglitz (1864–1946) captures the international development of photography as it moved from the painterly Impressionistic images of the late 19th century to the modernist aesthetic that began after the turn of the 20th century.

The exhibition features rare, hand-crafted vintage prints made in a variety of processes by influential and iconic masters of the medium including Gertrude Kasebier (1852–1934), Clarence White (1871–1925), Edward Steichen (1879–1973), and Paul Strand (1890–1976), who are all represented by significant groups of photographs.

This exhibition is drawn from the
collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg and organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.

Rolling Hills, Satanic Mills:
The British Passion for Landscape

May 9–August 2, 2015  


Drawn from the remarkable collections of the National Museum Wales, this exhibition traces the development of landscape painting in Britain through the Industrial Revolution and the eras of Romanticism, Impressionism, and Modernism, to the postmodern and post-industrial imagery of today. More than 60 works of art, including major oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and photographs, offer fresh insight into the changing relationship between artists and the landscape, as well as the evolving tastes of wealthy collectors.

Beginning with Old Masters like Claude Lorrain (1604–1682) and Salvator Rosa (1615–1673), the exhibition features an international roster of artists from famed British names like Joseph Wright of Derby (1734–1797), John Constable (1776–1837), Thomas Gainsborough (1727–1788), and J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851), to Impressionists like Claude Monet (1840–1926) and Alfred Sisley (1839–1899).
The exhibition is organized by the American Federation of Arts and National Museum Wales, and is curated by Tim Barringer and Oliver Fairclough.
