Travels on Paper

On view through February 9
Before our era of mass tourism and Instagrammable vacations, the opportunity to visit renowned sites and experience exotic locales was limited to a privileged few. Printed imagery meant that scenes of foreign lands, majestic monuments, and picturesque views could spread to a much wider public. This exhibition will take visitors on a world tour featuring prints, drawings, and photographs by Camille Corot, Alexandre-Gabriel Decamps, John La Farge, Robert Macpherson, Thomas Moran, Félix Teynard, and others. Read the full press release.

Arabesque

Opens December 14
Implying infinite freedom and open-ended, self-engendering form, the arabesque motif is deeply associated with Islamic art and architecture while also being central to key movements in European art. Long relegated to the status of frame or border, and used chiefly as a decorative addition, arabesque found new life in the nineteenth century as it "broke out of the frame" and came into its own as an independent driver of pictorial innovation. The exhibition will trace this process over a series of moments in European art when arabesque was in the ascendant—from German Romanticism to the Pre-Raphaelites, Nabi artists, and Art Nouveau. Read the full press release.
