Charles Courtney Curran: Seeking the Ideal
Feb 20, 2015 - May 17, 2015

Seeking the Ideal is the first-ever museum retrospective of this American Impressionist painter, bringing together 58 Curran masterpieces sure to astonish with their jewel-like color, immense space, and love for beauty. Charles Curran's heart was claimed by women, children, and flowers, and he devoted a lifetime to painting them in the full light of day out of doors. Curran's career blossomed in the 1880s when French Impressionism had changed the art world. Working in the beautiful Hudson River Valley, Curran became a much-respected leader of the art colony there in the early decades of the 20th century. These are wistful images, each one full of optimism and grace. He looked for what was ideal in American life and made it even more so.

Learn more about Charles Courtney Curran with these resources selected by and available at Richland Library.

Organized by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, with the Frick Art & Historical Center and the Columbia Museum of Art.
