"Splendors of 16th and 17th Century: Dutch, Spanish, Flemish, French, British Painting From the Collections of the Ringling Museum of Art"
2002-04-12 until 2002-06-02
Appleton Museum of Art
Ocala, FL, 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 Elder.

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.
