Take a tour to see two separate exhibitions by two major artists side-by-side. “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.” said Salvador Salort-Pons, DIA director. The exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts.
“Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage” focuses on American artist Frederic Church’s paintings done in the Middle East, Athens and Rome. He was the most popular painter in mid-19th century America and best known for his large paintings of wild places in North and South America, North Atlantic and the Caribbean.
“Monet: Framing Life” focuses on an important painting owned by DIA – Claude Monet’s “Rounded Flower Bed” from 1876, formerly known as “Gladioli” and recently retitled based on new research. It was in Argenteuil between 1871-1878 where Monet worked beside avant-garde painters that formed the group today known as the Impressionists. This exhibition brings the DIA’s painting together with 10 other paintings by Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir including one painting on loan from Tokyo, Japan.
