William Blake: Visionary

Published on October 26, 2023

A remarkable printmaker, painter, and poet, William Blake developed a wildly unconventional world view, representing universal forces of creation and destruction, physical, psychological, and historical, through his own cast of characters. By combining his poetry and images on the page through radical graphic techniques, Blake created some of the most striking and enduring imagery in British art. This major international loan exhibition explores the artist-poet’s imaginative world through his most celebrated works.

The exhibition takes place at the Getty Center, 1200 Getty Center Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90049 from October 17, 2023 – January 14, 2024.

Fashioned by Sargent

Published on October 19, 2023

Organized with Tate Britain, “Fashioned by Sargent” explores the artist’s complex relationship with his often-affluent clients and their clothes.

Alongside about 50 paintings by Sargent, over a dozen period garments and accessories shed new light on the relationship between fashion and this beloved artist’s creative practice.

The exhibition runs at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston,  465 Huntington Ave, Boston MA 02115 from October 8, 2023 – January 15, 2024.

Degas and the Laundress: Women, Work, and Impressionism

Published on October 17, 2023

This exhibition is the first to explore Impressionist artist Edgar Degas’s representations of Parisian laundresses. The industry fascinated Degas throughout his long career and he created about 30 depictions of laundresses, a selection of which is united for the first time in this exhibition. The artworks from this series, revolutionary in their emphasis on women’s work, the strenuousness of such labor, and social class, were featured in Degas’s earliest and most significant exhibitions, where they were praised by critics as epitomizing modernity.

Also on view are paintings, drawings, and prints of the same subject by the artist’s contemporaries, including Gustave Caillebotte, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

The exhibition runs from October 8, 2023 – January `4, 2024 at the Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland OH 44106.

Making Her Mark: A History of Women Artists in Europe, 1400-1800

Published on October 9, 2023

For centuries, women artists in Europe were considered rare and less talented than their male counterparts. Women who achieved professional artistic careers were deemed anomalous or exceptional, while those who engaged in creative pursuits in the home were dismissed as amateurs, and their works were categorized as material culture rather than art.

This exhibition aims to correct these broadly held but mistaken beliefs through more than 175 works from the 15th to 18th centuries that reflect the multifaceted and often overlooked ways that women contributed to the visual arts of Europe.

Examples by such artists as Sofonisba Anguissola, Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster, Luisa Roldán, Rosalba Carriera, Rachel Ruysch, and Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun among others will be on view.

The exhibition takes place October 1, 2023 – January 7, 2024 at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Dr., Baltimore, MD 21218.

ASMA 19th National Exhibition

Published on October 6, 2023

The American Society of Marine Artists will present its 19th National Exhibition; a traveling show comprised of the finest maritime works from around the nation. 

On display are works by 113 artists who draw inspiration from water—water as a means of travel, a fragile ecosystem, a source of leisure and recreation, or pleasant scenery. The American Society of Marine Artists was founded in 1978 to preserve and promote contemporary American marine art. It came into being through the work of a small handful of representational artists and marine art enthusiasts who felt that the rich cultural heritage of marine painting was in danger of being lost. ARC Living Master Sergio Roffo will be among the exhibiting artists.

The show will be on display at the Albany Institute of History and Art, 125 Washington Ave, Albany NY 12210 from September 10 - December 31, before traveling to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, from January 19 - May 12, 2024.

Frans Hals

Published on October 5, 2023

Hals was one of the most sought-after painters of his generation. A gifted artist whose deft brushwork was unparalleled, he built his reputation on a new style of portrait – highly unusual in his time – that showed relaxed, lively sitters, often smiling, and even laughing.

This exhibition, the first major retrospective of Hals in more than thirty years, means a new generation can discover why he deserves his place as one of the greatest painters in Western art.

Some 50 of Hals’s finest works will be brought together, including the exceptional, first-ever loan of his most famous picture, ‘The Laughing Cavalier’, from the Wallace Collection.

From small works to large group portraits, genre scenes, and marriage portraits reunited for the first time from international collections, visitors will see the very best of his life’s work.

The exhibition takes place at the National Gallery, Trafalgar Sq, London, UK from September 30, 2023 – January 1, 2024.

Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections

Published on October 5, 2023

This year marks the centennial of the death of the celebrated Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. In honor of this important anniversary, the Spanish government has declared 2023 the “year of Sorolla.” The Meadows Museum will celebrate the occasion with "Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections". Curated by renowned scholar Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the artist’s great-granddaughter, this exhibition will feature 27 compelling and rarely seen paintings from private collections in the United States, many of which will be displayed in a public museum for the first time. The exhibition will highlight Sorolla’s most popular and characteristic subjects, such as the sun-bleached sails of Valencian fishing boats, children frolicking on the shoreline, lively garden scenes, and pensive figural studies. The energetic brushstrokes of each canvas invite the visitor into the painter’s luminous world.

The exhibition runs from September 17, 2023 – January 7, 2024 at the Meadows Museum, 5900 Bishop Blvd., Dallas, TX.

Finding an Audience: Nineteenth Century Drawings

Published on October 4, 2023

In the 19th century, artists made large and ambitious “exhibition watercolors” for public display that could hold their own with oil paintings. For private collectors, they also made smaller works. And sometimes, artists made personal drawings for a friend or family member.

This exhibition celebrates highly finished drawings that explore rich uses of color and complex compositions. It features Getty-collection works by Edgar Degas, John Martin, Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and JMW Turner, among others.

The exhibition takes place at the Getty Center, 1200 Getty Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049 from September 26, 2023 – January 7, 2024.
