2002-04-12 until 2002-06-02
Appleton Museum of Art
USA United States of America
The Appleton Museum is proud to announce a glorious new exhibition:
Splendors treasured 16th and 17th Century paintings from the collection of
the Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota Art from Friday April 12 - Sunday June
2, 2002. The assembled group of Dutch, Spanish, Flemish, French, British
paintings features a painting by Peter Paul Rubens and Studio, a landscape
by Salomon van Ruisdael, a beautiful peasant wedding by David Teniers II The
Splendors samples the Ringling's extensive Baroque collection, considered
among the largest and finest in North America. Baroque art emerged as a
product of the Catholic Counter Reformation in the 17th century. It is
characterized, in part, by dynamic compositions that express movement and
passion. Venetian painters, like Titian, who used color and atmosphere as a
means to convey meaning, influenced Baroque artists such as Rembrandt.
Splendors is sure to be a beautiful, sumptuous exhibition of these important
Baroque paintings, many rarely exhibited. For frequent visitors to the
Appleton Museum of art, it will be a sensational companion exhibition to the
topics raised by the Appleton Salon.
The Ringling has extended many courtesies to the Appleton Museum of Art over
the past year through the generous loans of exhibitions and individual art
objects to complement Appleton shows. The Appleton and the Ringling are
members of the Florida State University family of art museums. Members may
use their Spring Passport 2002 for entry to this and all other special
exhibitions through May 31,2002.
