Night, Smoke, and Shadows: The Presence of Atmosphere in the 19th Century
Many artists active in the 19th century manipulated the appearance of atmosphere in order to create the illusion of space and texture, imply a mood, and even shape the narrative content of an image. They were inspired by industrialization and new ideas about optics and abstraction, and they exploited unprecedented opportunities to experiment with processes and materials. This exhibition includes prints, drawings, and photographs by artists such as James McNeill Whistler (U.S.A., 1834–1903), Max Klinger (Germany, 1857–1920), Félicien Rops (Belgium, 1833–1898), and Alvin Langdon Coburn (U.S.A., 1882–1966).
Ongoing every day from May 14, 2014 through October 6, 2014.
11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Open Wed-Sun 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY. After September 21 closed Monday.
