Canova: Sketching in Clay

Published on June 23, 2023

Working with his hands and small tools, Canova produced dazzling sketch models in clay, which helped him plan his designs for his large statues in marble. Imprinted with the fire of his imagination, these sketches were boldly executed in mere minutes. Canova also made more finished models, sensuous in their details, that he showed to patrons or used as guides for carving.

More than 30 of his some 60 or so surviving models reveal the artist’s extraordinary working process—a process that led to the creation of some of the most iconic works in the history of sculpture.

The exhibition runs from June 11- October 9, 2023 at the National Gallery of Art, 6th St and Constitution Ave NW, Washington D.C.

Into the Woods: French Drawings and Photographs from the Karen B. Cohen Gift

Published on June 22, 2023

Into the Woods: French Drawings and Photographs from the Karen B. Cohen Gift combines objects gifted from Morgan Trustee Karen B. Cohen with related examples from the Morgan’s collection. This selection of over fifty works on paper by French nineteenth-century artists will explore new approaches to the rural landscape and help define the role artists played in defining a modern relationship to nature.

The development of portable equipment, the expansion of the railway system, and the technical innovation of photography all helped reshape artists’ relationship with nature in the nineteenth century. This exhibition asks how painters, draftsmen, and photographers approached the traditional subject of landscape and scenes of rural life in new ways. They discovered new effects through the use of a wide range of media, from charcoal to photography. A focus on rural laborers, and women in particular, led to some of the first empathetic—and least romanticized—depictions of the rural working class. 

The exhibition runs from June 16 - October 22, 2023 at the Morgan Library, 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street, New York, NY 10016.

Tony Ryder Portrait Intensive at BACAA

Published on June 21, 2023

Only 2 spots remaining in each program

An exclusive opportunity to study with Master Artist Tony Ryder in a  4-week long program at  Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier.

BACAA/Tony Ryder Master Residency Portrait Drawing Program-2023 - August 7-11, 2023. The workshop includes intensive study of the portrait, a one-week course in the fundamental principles of long pose portrait drawing in pencil on white drawing paper, and in pencil and white chalk on tinted paper. Open to all levels. The workshop will include 100 hours including Tony's daily 2 hour demos and  lectures. This will strengthen and help each student  gain an understanding of light and form and the beauty of subtle progressions.  

BACAA/Tony Ryder Master Residency Portrait Painting Workshop-2023  - August 14 – September 1, 2023. An introduction to Form Painting, a complete method of painting the portrait in oil, in five stages.  Weeks two through 4 Tony will teach Form Painting. It is a direct ‘window shade’ method of painting wet into wet, and into a dark base.  This is not a paint everywhere quickly approach. One section is painted at a time, finishing it completely, before going to the next section. The painting slowly reveals itself as if a window shade were being withdrawn to expose the scene hidden behind it. This approach necessitates careful control of value and color.  

Students are able to book only one or both workshops. For more information, please visit BACAA.org.

Pastel Portraits - Drawn from Life?

Published on June 7, 2023

Pastel Portraits - Drawn from Life?

Artists in 18th-century Europe relished the convenience and versatility of pastels to make portraits, which ranged from straightforward likenesses to imaginary renderings. This focused installation, principally from the Museum’s collection, features pastels by two of the most important women artists of 18th-century Europe, Adélaïde Labille-Guiard and Rosalba Carriera. It asks visitors to consider: who gets a portrait and who decides what it looks like?

The exhibition will be held from March 14 – September 17, 2023 at the Getty Center, 1200 Getty Center Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90049.
