Exhibition: September 28 to November 12
Reception: Saturday October 8 from 2 to 4 pm
The still life has always been a popular subject in the art world. Whether intended to represent the beauty of valuable objects, allegorical and religious symbolism, or the fleeting, ephemeral qualities of life, such paintings have been the subject of admiration for patrons throughout history. From Rembrandt to Cezanne to Braque, artists with drastically different styles and approaches to form have mastered the genre. The artists represented in The Whistler House Museum of Art's collection are no different, ranging from George Loftus Noyes and his post-impressionistic floral arrangement to Arshile Gorky, who painted modernist pink roses.
