GLENS FALLS, NY.-
Beginning in September 2012, The Hyde Collection
will lend works of art to three American exhibitions in the cities of Philadelphia, Denver, and Newark.
Forebodings (1881), a watercolor by one of Americas best-known artists, Winslow Homer (1836-1910), will be part of the Philadelphia Museum of Arts exhibition Shipwreck! Winslow Homer and The Life Line. The Hydes watercolor provides a link between Philadelphias dramatic image of an American rescue at sea painted in 1884 and Homers earlier work created at Cullercoats on the north coast of England in 1881-82. The aptly titled Forebodings, captures the anxious mood of two fishermens wives standing on a wind-driven shore, looking across the vastness of a stormy sea to distantly silhouetted fishing vessels. The exhibition will be on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from September 16 -December 16, 2012.
In Colorado, at the Denver Art Museum, The Hyde Collections drawing by Vincent van Gogh entitled The Orchard with Arles in the Background will be shown in the exhibition Van Goghs Awakening: Antwerp, Paris, Arles. The exhibition traces the evolution of the artists mature style. The Hydes pen and ink landscape demonstrates a key element in this process, as Van Gogh mastered the subject of a walled orchard in Arles during this critical period in his career. It is one of a series of works representing this scene including a painting from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that will also be featured in the Denver exhibition. Van Goghs Awakening will be on view at the Denver Art Museum from October 20, 2012 through January 20, 2013.
A sculpture by John Rogers (1829-1904), The School Examination, will be on loan to the Newark Museum for the exhibition Angels and Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th-Century American Art. This is the first in-depth examination of nineteenth-century depictions of girlhood in paintings, sculpture, prints and photographs. The exhibition will explore the myriad ways that American artists participated in the artistic and social construction of girlhood throughout the 1800s. The exhibition will open in Newark and be on view from September 11, 2012 January 7, 2013, then travel to the Brooks Museum in Memphis, Tennessee from February 16 May 12, 2013.
