Dewing • Saint-Gaudens • Vedder is an exhibition that highlights the work and lives of three American artists from the turn-of-the-century; Thomas Dewing, Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Elihu Vedder. All had interesting careers which led them to be considered among some of the best artists of their time. This exhibition is curated by the Museum’s Curator, Daniel Zies and is on view until April 5, 2020. This exhibition can be seen in the Rodman Gallery of the Ellen Noël Art Museum. Art work on loan from the Jean and Graham Devoe Williford Charitable Trust collection.
Dewing was known for his tonalist painting which exhibited a moody and dreamlike quality. He was a figure painter and accomplished draftsman who specialized in ethereal pictures of women.
Saint-Gaudents was a famed sculptor who combined naturalism and monumentality in his works and was one of the best-known and influential sculptors of his time. His commission work The Shaw Memorial is considered by some to be America’s greatest public monument.
Vedder was recognized as a romantic painter and illustrator whose reputation is based primarily on paintings derived from dreams and fantasies. He is best known for his murals that he painted for the lobby of the United States Library of Congress.
