Exhibition/Collection Loan: Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England

Developed around two iconic Homer paintings—the Worcester Art Museum’s The Gale (1883–93) and the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Hark! The Lark (1882)—the exhibition Coming Away: Winslow Homer and England explores the artist’s time in Cullercoats, England, in 1881 and 1882. Jointly coordinated by Worcester and Milwaukee, the exhibition features the most comprehensive group of oils made during or emerging directly from Homer’s time abroad. Shown alongside comparative paintings by English artists, these works complicate our understanding of Homer’s art as purely American in subject and style.  From the collection of the Terra Foundation for American Art, Winslow Homer’s Perils of the Sea and The Nurse are exhibited.

This exhibition is also on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, (March 2–May 20, 2018).

California Mexicana: Missions to Murals, 1820–1930 explores how Mexico became California.  Juxtaposing paintings with popular posters, prints, and some of the earliest movies made in Los Angeles, the exhibition reveals how this image of California spread worldwide. Objects range from picturesque landscapes of Alta California and still life paintings featuring fruits, flowers, and other plants that celebrated the state’s agricultural growth, to works by early modernists such as the Mexican painters Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.  Included in the exhibition from the Terra Foundation Collection, William S. Jewett ’s The Promised Land-The Grayson Family  depicts Captain A. J. Grayson, an ornithologist-artist, his wife, and son as they emerge from the wilderness to view the summit of the Sierra Nevada.

California Mexicana: Missions to Murals, 1820–1930  is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles.

Exhibition/Collection Loan: Stuart Davis: In Full Swing

Co-organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the National Gallery of Art, this exhibition examines, with new detail and insights, how Stuart Davis (1892–1964) appropriated European avant-garde painting to convey the experience of contemporary American life. Over the course of his 60-year career, the artist invented a vocabulary in which bold colors and flat, jagged forms were compressed into dense, syncopated compositions that mimic the impact of abstract billboards. By emphasizing his mature work, created after he had assimilated the lessons of Fauvism and Cubism, this exhibition argues that Davis made the European modernist styles his own and thereby created an American modernism of equal vibrancy and complexity. Stuart Davis: In Full Swing features Davis’s Super Table, from the collection of the Terra Foundation for American Art. 

This exhibition is on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York (June 10–September 25, 2016); National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC (November 20, 2016–March 5, 2017); the de Young Museum, San Francisco, California (April 1–August 6, 2017); and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas (September 16, 2017–January 1, 2018).
