Eye on the Collection, Winter 2013
January 19 - March 10, 2013
Following a recent visit to the Addison, Boston Globe art critic Mark Feeney described the museum’s “rich and glorious” collection of American art, which is widely recognized as one of the most comprehensive in the world. This season, we celebrate the collection with a constellation of exhibitions that showcase the Addison’s paintings, prints, and photographs.
Eye on the Collection anchors the season with a selection of some of the most well-known and loved paintings in our collection, from Winslow Homer’s charming interior, The Country School, George Inness’s moody landscape, The Monk, and John Henry Twachtman’s evocative Hemlock Pool, to twentieth-century masterworks such as Hans Hofmann’s Exaltment, Josef Albers’s Bent Black A, and Jackson Pollock’s Phosphorescence.
While Eye on the Collection concentrates on the Addison’s paintings, Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking explores the range and diversity of the Addison’s vast print holdings, with a focus on techniques; and Frame by Frame: Photographic Series and Portfolios highlights the Addison’s extensive collection of complete photographic series and portfolios.
