"Landscapes of Retrospection: The Magoon Collection of British Drawings and Prints,1739-1860"
2001-06-09 until 0000-00-00
Carnegie Museum of Art
Pittsburgh, PA, USA

In 1864, Reverend Elias Magoon sold his art collection to Vassar College for the purpose of establishing an art gallery there. The heart of this collection was a large number of drawings and prints acquired from the London estate of John Britton, an influential author and publisher of antiquarian and topographic books on British architecture and scenery. Landscapes of Retrospection brings together for the first time more than one hundred of the finest architectural views, landscape watercolors, and other works on paper from the Magoon Collection. The exhibition is comprised largely of depictions of medieval English ruins and antiquities and includes work by some of the most accomplished artists and architectural draftsmen in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain, including J.M. W. Turner, Augustus Charles Pugin, Sir John Soane, and Joseph Gandy. The exhibition has been organized by The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York.
