Description
View along the east wall toward the northeast corner of the Center Gallery on the lower level of the Walker Art Building during a reception to celebrate the opening of the exhibition "Night Vision: Nocturnes in American Art, 1860-1960," which was shown in the Osher, Halford, Center, Becker, and Focus Galleries from June 27, 2015 through October 18, 2015. Prior to the reception a lecture was presented in Kresge Auditorium by Barbara Haskell, a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, who discussed several paintings of the night that came to define American modernism. Organized by Bowdoin's curator Joachim Homann, this is the first major museum survey dedicated to scenes of the night in American art from 1860 to 1960 - from a period prior to the invention of electric lighting to the beginning of the Space Age. This exhibition is accompanied by a major catalog published on July 01, 2015 by DelMonico Books-Prestel and the Bowdoin College Museum of Art and generously supported by the Wyeth Foundation for American Art.
