Coming Soon to NSU Art Museum: William J. Glackens and Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Affinities and Distinctions Exhibition

By wlchrist Glackens William J. Glackens and Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Affinities and Distinctions opens at NSU Art Museum on October 21 and runs until May 19, 2019. One of America’s leading modern artists, painter William Glackens (1870-1938) had a keen interest in the work of Pierre-Auguste Renoir that has long been recognized. He saw the French Impressionist’s works in New York galleries as early as 1908 and had unique access to the growing collection of his friend and colleague, Albert C. Barnes. However, Glackens’ specific debt to the art of this important French modernist has never been fully explored. William Glackens and Pierre-Auguste Renoir: Affinities and Distinctions fills this void by bringing together 25 works by each artist that illuminate Renoir’s influence on Glackens’ artistic development. It also reveals how changes in Glackens’ work after 1920 illustrate his response to Renoir’s late work, as well as that of other important European modernists in Barnes’ collection in order to forge his own distinctive American modernism. On view at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale from October 21, 2018 through May 19, 2019, the exhibition defines Glackens’ late style for the first time (c.1920 to 1938), and also sheds light on the history of taste in …read more Source:: NSU News       ...
