CONTEMPLATING
CHARACTER
Portrait Drawings & Oil Sketches from
Jacques-Louis David to Lucian Freud

Our new exhibition, CONTEMPLATING CHARACTER: PORTRAIT Drawings & Oil Sketches from Jacques Louis David to Lucian Freud, premiered at the Lowe Art Museum, Coral Gables, FL, in October 2015 and was presented at the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts, FL, in February, 2016. It will be presented at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens, Memphis, TN, in the spring of 2018. The exhibition explores the evolution of portraiture from the end of the 18th century until the present. The exhibition is available through 2019.

CONTEMPLATING CHARACTER explores the evolution of portraiture from the end of the 18th century until the present. In contrast to portraiture as the tired flattery of the rich and powerful at the end of the eighteenth century, this exhibition recognizes the invigorating new movements of Neoclassicism, Romanticism and Realism that took hold of art at the end of the eighteenth century into the nineteenth century. There emerged a desire for a sense of  "unvarnished truth," as a new, more honest, and gritty incisiveness of depiction of personality emerged, rarely exhibited in earlier eras. By the twentieth century, the hallmark of these works is individuality: the sense of “personality,” whether Post- Impressionist, Expressionist, Surrealist, or Realist.

The invention of photography at the end of the 1830s freed creative artists from the necessity of providing mere likeness through their art, to the degree that Paul Delaroche said, “From today, painting is dead.” He was wrong--it simply freed artists from the chore of representation, allowing imagination and creativity to rule, as this exhibition clearly demonstrates, featuring 1520 rare portrait drawings and oil sketches from the late 18th century--including a work by Jacques Louis David, forward to the contemporary, exemplified by Lucian Freud.


The exhibition includes 152 works which are drawn from the collection of esteemed curator, Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

It would not then have been out of line with the convictions of his society, with Netherlandish artistic tradition or classical art theory, had Rembrandt depicted beggars as contemptible or loathsome creatures. Indeed, some of his work fits perfectly well into "

THE PRINTS OF
ROCKWELL KENT
Selections from the
Nemec Collection

THE PRINTS OF ROCKWELL KENT features sixty works drawn from the collection of Ralf C. Nemec, the largest assemblage of Rockwell Kent prints in the world. Renowned for his block print book illustrations, particularly The Complete Works of William Shakespeare and Moby Dick, Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) worked in a variety of media, including oil painting, woodcuts, lithographs, drawings and ceramics.

Kent studied architecture at Columbia University and painted under William Merritt Chase at the Shinnecock Hills School. He also studied painting under Robert Henri at the New York School of Art, where his classmates were Edward Hopper and George Bellows. Encouraged by his teacher to see Maine, he visited Monhegan Island in 1905 and built a home and studio there that he used year-round (through 1910). His numerous jobs as architectural draftsman, illustrator, lobsterman, ship’s carpenter, longshoreman and lighthouse keeper fed his vision.

Kent’s adventures captured the American imagination. His paintings, lithographs and woodcuts often portrayed the bleak and rugged aspects of nature; a reflection of his life in harsh climates. In the mid-twenties that Kent became enamored with woodcutting and lithography and began illustrating classic literature.

“VOLCANOS, WRECKS, RIOTS, & NUDES”
EDWARD HAGEDORN (1902-1982) American Modernist

Edward Hagedorn (American 1902-1982) managed to convey the darkness and upheaval that gripped the country in the depression years, 1925-1935--more forcefully than any of his contemporaries. During his career Hagedorn successfully engaged in a wide variety of modernist styles, including Expressionism and Surrealism, but because of his solitary and eccentric personality there was only limited exposure and recognition of his artistic accomplishments in his lifetime. He attracted the attention of Galka Scheyer, the German emissary in America of the famed Blue Four, who, asked him to become the fifth member of the group, although her offer was refused. “In his extensive body of graphic work, notable for its intense visual imagination, Hagedorn combined the biting wit of James Ensor (Belgian 1860-1949), the strong design of Felix Vallotton (French 1865-1925), and the fierce humanity of Kathe Kollwitz (German 1867-1945) in some of the most bold, original, and emotionally charged American prints of the 20th Century." - Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus Achenbach Foundation For Graphic Arts Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The exhibition includes 75 works of art and coincides with publication of the first monograph devoted to the artist’s work with essays by leading curators, critics, and art historians. The exhibition premiered in Spring 2016 at the Danforth Museum of Art, Framingham, MA and is currently at the Fullerton Art Museum, CSU San Bernadino, CA.

FIFTEEN MINUTES
HOMAGE TO ANDY WARHOL

FIFTEEN MINUTES features silkscreen prints and original recordings, ranging from spoken word to music and sound, created by a diverse roster of artists, writers and performers who knew, worked with, were associated with or were inspired by Andy Warhol.  Included are Patti Smith, Ivan Karp, Billy Name, Ultra Violet, Lawrence Weiner, Bob Dylan, Carter Ratcliff, John Giorno, Vincent Fremont, Alexander Heinrici, Brigid Berlin, Christopher Makos, Yura Adams, Nat Finkelstein, Connie Beckley, Susan Breen, Path Soong, and Jeff Gordon. The exhibition juxtaposes each artist’s 12 x 12 inch (album sized) visual image with an audio work created in homage to Warhol. For instance, Patti Smith’s poem, “Edie,” muses on the life and death of Warhol Superstar Edie Sedgwick. Nat Finkelstein’s screen printed photograph shows Warhol and Dylan in the Factory with one of Warhol’s Elvis paintings in the background. In his song, “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” Dylan critiques the Warholian notion of fame and success. Gordon’s screen print modifies one of Warhol’s Brillo Box sculptures as a visual analogy to his sound piece, which loops excerpts from a Warhol interview and lasts for the proverbial 15 minutes. The exhibition has been presented at the following institutions: Pollock-Krasner House & Study Center, East Hampton, NY, The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA, Burke Library Hamilton College , Clinton, NY,Case-Geyer Library, Colgate University Hamilton, NY, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Beijing, China.

BEING REALIST:
THE INTIMISTS

FRANÇOIS BONVIN &
THÉODULE RIBOT, 1850-1890

Although Gustave Courbet is often seen as the primary Realist artist in France during the 19th century there were other creators who were both prolific and significant in fostering an art for man, an art for the people. Among these figures were François Bonvin (1817- 1887) and his friend and colleague Théodule Ribot (1819-1891) whose careers were both prolific and well appreciated at the time.

Working in all media Bonvin and Ribot were often seen by art critics of the nineteenth century as reincarnations of earlier artists, those painters who had worked in a realist mode in the seventeenth century in France, Holland or Spain. Bonvin was often dubbed the new “Chardin” and Ribot’s work was compared with the compositions of the Spanish painter tenebrist Jusepe Ribera. Although cognizant of these earlier masters Bonvin and Ribot were able to forge their own approach in paintings, charcoal drawings, watercolors and etchings contributing to the increasing revival of interest in many media. Focusing on the intimate scenes of daily life, Bonvin and Ribot extolled the virtues of a simple, humble existence. Their works that stressed quietude were well appreciated at the time entering into major private collections where they were often hung alongside works by Chardin or the Spanish masters of the seventeenth century.

Now, with the availability of a selection of works by Bonvin and Ribot from the Dhawan Collection, contemporary audiences will be able to learn anew about the evolution of nineteenth century realism. BEING REALIST is curated Dr. Gabriel P. Weisberg, an expert on nineteenth century realism and the author of basic texts on François Bonvin and Théodule Ribot. The exhibition which includes fifty works by these artists, in all media, examines the intimacy of their work and the importance these artists had in the expanding awareness of the evolution of the realist tradition. The exhibition is organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions.
