Description
View along the west wall (left) toward the north wall of the Zuckert Seminar Room on the lower level of the Walker Art Building. The doorway through the north wall leads to the Focus Gallery, which held part of the exhibition "This is a Portrait If I Say So: Identity in American Art, 1912 to Today." The exhibition in the Zuckert Seminar Room is "Barbara Cooney: Drawing Biography" and was shown from May 19, 2016 through August 28, 2016 in the Zuckert Seminar Room. It brings together works related to three of her books: "Miss Rumphius," "Hattie and the Wild Waves," and "Eleanor." It also celebrates the recent gift to the Museum of original preparatory sketches and manuscripts for "Eleanor." Focusing on the lives of three women rendered in detailed paintings, this exhibition explores how Cooney (1917-2000) crafted rich and meaningful biographies through text and image. As a child Cooney spent many of her summers at her Grandmother's home in Maine, finally returning to the state late in life to reside in Damariscotta in a house built for her by her son.
