Delaware Art Museum

May

Thu
Family Focused INbudget Top Pick
#ALLinFun (Family Focused), #INbudget ($0-$10), Educational (Family), Museum Exhibitions, Neighborhoods, Visual Arts

While little known today, during his lifetime W. Heath Robinson (1872 -1944) was ranked with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac as one of England’s foremost illustrators. Beginning in the 1890s Robinson developed a linear style that looks back to the innovations of the Pre-Raphaelite illustrators and forward to the art nouveau creations of Aubrey Beardsley and others. He illustrated a broad range of texts, including William Shakespeare, Rudyard Kipling, and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, in addition to children’s books he wrote himself. He is best remembered today for his humorous depictions of Rube Goldberg-like contraptions and gentle satires of contemporary life...

#INbudget ($0-$10), Visual Arts

For almost thirty-five years, Somerville Manning Gallery has specialized in paintings by the Wyeth family. The American Masters exhibition continues to juxtapose the artworks of N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth with the artists of their respective eras. Returning to a theme so successfully received, the gallery’s exhibition will run concurrent with the Brandywine River Museum of Art’s exhibition, “From Homer to Hopper: Experiment and Ingenuity on American Art.” Both shows will feature original paintings by a similar list of artists which explores over 100 years of Masters in the American art world.

Along with paintings by N.C. Wyeth will be works by American impressionists, Maurice Prendergast, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, John Henry Twachtman and J. Alden Weir. A highlight of the exhibition is a stunning portrait by renowned Philadelphia painter, Thomas Eakins. Acclaimed artists, John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer will be on view along with a major work by American Modernist Jacob Lawrence

Paintings by the father of abstract expressionism, Hans Hofmann, will coincide with the Post- War period in which Andrew Wyeth was exploring realism. Contemporary pieces by Jim Dine, Wolf Kahn, and Jamie Wyeth will round out the 21st century. The exhibition includes other works from many important American schools and traditions that run the gambit from realism to abstraction.
