DETROIT, MICH.- Art lovers are getting a two-for-one treat with the Detroit Institute of Arts' two new major exhibitions. “Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage” will be on view through Jan. 15, 2018 and “Monet: Framing Life” will run through March 4, 2018.

“We are fortunate to be able to open two separate exhibitions by two major artists side-by-side,” said Salvador Salort-Pons, DIA director. “The works we have assembled by Church and Monet will transport visitors to distinct places and time in history, allowing them to experience the world as the artists did.”

“Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage” focuses on American artist Frederic Church’s paintings done in the Middle East, Athens and Rome. Church was the most popular and financially successful painter in mid-19th-century America, best known for his large paintings of wild places in North and South America, the North Atlantic and the Caribbean. But from the late 1860s until the late 1870s, many of his most important paintings represented ancient cities or buildings that he had seen on his 1867 to 1869 trip to the Middle East and the Mediterranean.

While Church’s paintings of the Americas are primarily concerned with nature, his major paintings of Middle Eastern, Greek and Roman themes concentrate on human history. The exhibition compares numerous pencil drawings and oil studies that Church completed during his trip to the major paintings he completed back in his studio.

A catalog accompanies the exhibition.

This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The exhibition will travel to two additional venues in 2018: Reynolda House Museum of American Art in Winston-Salem, NC from Feb. 8 to May 13, 2018 and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT from June 2 to Aug. 26, 2018.

“Monet: Framing Life” is an intimate exhibition focusing on an important painting in the DIA collection—Claude Monet’s “Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs)” from 1876, formerly known as “Gladioli” and recently retitled based on new research. Monet created this work while living in the Paris suburb of Argenteuil between late 1871 and early 1878, an especially productive time. It was there that he met and worked beside fellow avant-garde painters that formed the group now known as the Impressionists.

This exhibition brings the DIA’s painting together with 10 other Argenteuil paintings by Monet and fellow impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir—including seven major loans from the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. In doing so, the exhibition presents a more comprehensive story about the creation of “Rounded Flower Bed (Corbeille de fleurs)” and how it fits into Monet’s body of work, as well as the history of Impressionism more broadly.

A catalog accompanies the exhibition.

This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts and made possible by the Bonnie Ann Larson Modern European Master Series.
