In Praise of Donors, Selections from the Dr. and Mrs. R. Stephen Lehman Collection to Open at Snite Museum of Art
The Artist's Mother, 1628. Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, Dutch, 1606-1669, etching. Gift of Dr. and Mrs. R. Stephen Lehman. 2006.066.002ly 13, 2009.
SOUTH BEND, IN.- The Snite Museum of Art announces the opening of the exhibition In Praise of Donors, Selections from the Dr. and Mrs. R. Stephen Lehman Collection on September 6, 2009.

On Sunday, September 13, 2-4pm the Snite Museum will host a public reception for this and all fall special exhibitions.

This event is free and open to the public.

This exhibition features artworks recently given by Advisory Council member, and former chair, Dr. R. Stephen Lehman and his wife Maureen. Artists represented include Aldegrever, Durer, Rembrandt, Renoir, Stieglitz and Whistler.

A featured image is Spring Showers, New York, 1900, a photogravure by Alfred Stieglitz who, "subscribed to a theory that the principal subject of a photo should be in sharp focus while secondary elements should be left out of focus. The theory was called "naturalism" because it was thought that these types of photographs most closely resembled the way the human eye naturally sees things, focusing on one area while surrounding details fall away. In Spring Showers, New York, Stieglitz let the weather keep the photo's background slightly out of focus, then added to the effect when he printed the negative by keeping the area in low contrast and evenly toned." Quote from Get The Picture: Thinking About Photographs, Minneapolis Institute of Art.
