Exhibition/Collection Loan: Japan America: Points of Contact, 1876–1970

Following the “opening” of Japan by the United States Navy in 1853, international expositions began to alert artists and collectors in the West to the seemingly exotic art of Japan. This exhibition examines the reciprocal influence of these events in forming both the West’s conception of a Japanese aesthetic and its incorporation into both high and low art forms, as well as the response by the Japanese to the West’s interest and to Western art. It includes objects in a wide variety of media—fans, paintings, prints, vases, stoneware, and more—by American artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Winslow Homer, Milton Avery, and Mary Cassatt; and Japanese artists like Gen Yamaguchi and Kiyoshi Saito.

From the collection of the Terra Foundation for American Art, Childe Hassam, The White Kimono and  Edmund Tarbell, In the Orchard are exhibited in  Japan America: Points of Contact, 1876–1970 organized by Cornell University’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art.

The exhibition is also on view at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Ithaca, New York, August 27 – December 18, 2016 and Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, California, February 12–May 21, 2017.

Exhibition/Collection Loan: Bellows and the Body: The Real, The Ideal and the Nude

From the collection of the Terra Collection for American Art,  Nude Girl, Miss Leslie Hall by George Bellows is exhibited in Bellows and the Body: The Real, The Ideal and the Nude.  Organized by the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham, this exhibition focuses on the treatment of the human figure by artist George Bellows and his contemporaries. Bellows was a member of the “Ashcan School” group of painters in New York, a group who painted street life, prostitutes, and wrestlers, carving out their lives among the tenements and sidewalks of the city. The exhibit explores how style and subject matter demonstrated awareness of class and a commitment to social realism. Looking through the lens of the nude, the show opens up new and unexpected insights into the Ashcan school’s practice and preoccupations in the early 20th century.  In conjunction with the exhibition, a one day symposium is organized by the University of Birmingham, November 4, 2016.

This exhibition is on view at the  Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK, October 22, 2016–January 22, 2017.

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.

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).
