March 08, 2011 - June 05, 2011
View the most recent Hyde Collections acquisitions, many on view at the Museum for the first time.
March 4 – June 5, 2011
This exhibition will feature approximately twenty-four new works of art acquired by The Hyde Collection between 2008 and 2010. During this period, the Museum accessioned an unprecedented ninety-six objects into its permanent collection through bequests, gifts, and purchases from a variety of donors and sources. What’s New will include a selection of these recent additions to the permanent collection that will introduce new artists who, heretofore, have not been represented in the collection while emphasizing the variety of medium in which they worked. For example, the monumental etching, The Gate Of Venice from 1888, by the American artist Thomas Moran (1837-1926) will be featured, as well as a stunning Pond Lily Lamp from the Tiffany Studios dating to the early-twentieth century, a vibrant watercolor by the American modernist Arthur Dove (1880-1946) from 1934-35, and an early engraving by the German Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528). The works will be on view in the Hoopes Gallery and in the Education Wing of the Museum. The exhibition is curated by Erin Coe, chief curator, and Jayne Stokes, associate curator of The Hyde Collection.
