    Marvels and Mirages of Orientalism -
    From Spain to Morocco, Benjamin-Constant in His Time

    January 31, 2015 - May 31, 2015

    The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts - 1380 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

    This exhibition on Orientalism, a first for Canada, is based on extensive original research. The show unveils the forgotten figure of a master of the genre, Benjamin-Constant.

    Following in the footsteps of artists like Delacroix, whom he admired, this flamboyant painter's Orientalism is similar to that of Henri Regnault, Mariano Fortuny, Georges Clairin and Jean-Paul Laurens, who also figure largely in the exhibition. Appropriating the stereotypes of a colonial Near East, Benjamin-Constant alternated indolent odalisques and fierce Moors in his large-scale paintings.

    Sculpture in the Age of Donatello

    February 20 - June 14, 2015

    Twenty-three masterpieces of early Florentine Renaissance sculpture, most never seen outside Italy, will be exhibited at MOBIA as the centerpiece of the Museum's tenth anniversary season. MOBIA will be the sole world-wide venue for this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. Works by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia and others were made in the first decades of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral ("Il Duomo"), which was then in the last phase of its construction, and are figural complements to Brunelleschi's soaring dome, conveying an analogous sense of courage and human potential. Like the dome, these statues of prophets and saints express the spiritual tension of a faith-driven humanism destined to transform Western culture.

    Whistler in Paris, London, and Venice

    January 30, 2015 - July 19, 2015

    The Yale University Art Gallery - 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT

Each set is representative of an important period in Whistler's life: as a student in Paris, absorbing the lessons of his Realist contemporaries and the Old Masters; as an emerging artist in London, forging a name for himself as an etcher; and as a well-known artist and teacher in Venice.

    The Critique of Reason: Romantic Art, 1760ř1860

The show comprises paintings, sculptures, medals, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs by such iconic artists as William Blake, Géricault, Goya, and Turner. The broad range of work selected challenges the traditional notion of the Romantic artist as a brooding genius given to introversion and fantasy. Instead, the exhibition's eight thematic sections juxtapose arresting works that reveal the Romantics as attentive explorers of their natural and cultural worlds.

    Leighton's Flaming June

    June 9 - September 6, 2015

    Frick Collection - 1865 Broadway at 61st Street, New York, NY 10023
