Exhibition/Terra Collection Initiative: Samuel F. B. Morse’s “Gallery of the Louvre” and the Art of Invention

Known today primarily for his role in the development of the electromagnetic telegraph and his namesake code, Samuel Morse began his career as a painter. Created between 1831 and 1833 in Paris and New York, Gallery of the Louvre was Morse’s masterwork and the culmination of his studies in Europe. Morse’s “gallery picture,” a form first popularized in the seventeenth century, is the only major example of such in the history of American art. For this canvas, Morse selected masterpieces from the Louvre’s collection and imaginatively “reinstalled” them in one of the museum’s grandest spaces, the Salon Carré.

The exhibition Samuel F. B. Morse’s Gallery of the Louvre and the Art of Invention, a Terra Collection Initiative, is accompanied by an anthology of the same title, published by the Terra Foundation and distributed by Yale University Press.

The exhibition is on view at:

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).
