American Made: Paintings and Sculpture from The Demell Jacobsen Collection
September 10 - December 24Free – $15
The DeMell Jacobsen Collection is one of the best privately held collections of American art in the U.S., ranging from Colonial-era portraits to mid-19th-century landscape paintings. Still lives from the 1800s include moralizing genre scenes, packed with narrative detail, and intriguing Trompe-l’œil examples, optical illusions that trick the viewer into perceiving painted objects and spaces as real. Sculptures draw from the collection’s extensive selection of marble, copper and bronze pieces.
