DAYTONA BEACH, FL.- The most comprehensive and prestigious exhibition of Florida Watercolors will close March 25 at the Museum of Arts & Sciences. Reflections II: Watercolors of Florida 1835-2000, from the Collection of Cici and Hyatt Brown opened mid-November 2011. Featured artists include John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, Doris Lee, Reginald Marsh, Thomas Moran, Jane Peterson, Ogden Minton Pleissner, Anthony Thieme, Laura Woodward, and Andrew Wyeth.

Reflections I, which debuted at MOAS in 2009, is part of the largest private collection of Florida Art and is currently travelling throughout Florida. “This second exhibition is a stunningly beautiful follow-up to the first. The works are very different in format and technique, but are as visually interesting and historically important as the oil paintings,” states David C. Swoyer, Curator of the Brown Collection and MOAS’ former Chief Curator and Gary R. Libby Curator of Art.

The exhibition, as well as the accompanying definitive book written by Gary R. Libby, Reflections II: Watercolors of Florida 1835-2000 from the Collection of Cici and Hyatt Brown, presents a broad, full-color survey of watercolors of Florida in all styles, cataloging 165 years by the most significant artists working in Florida – and includes examples within Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Ashcan, Regionalism, Modernism and varieties of Abstraction. The Reflections II book, beginning with an essay by noted Harvard scholar and Chairman of its Department of American Art, Theodore E. Stebbins, Jr., PhD, represents the very first devoted exclusively to Florida watercolor and the artists who helped to memorialize the culture and art of Florida.

“This exhibition and book are significant not only to the Museum of Arts & Sciences here in Daytona Beach, but to the culture of Florida. We are proud and fortunate to be able to showcase this collection,” commented Deborah B. Allen, Interim Executive Director of the Museum.
