Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Cologne, Germany
November 23, 2018 - March 24, 2018
The Wallraf-Richartz-Museum will present a survey exhibition of U.S. Art from 1650 to 1950 this winter. The special exhibition will begin with works from the Colonial period, explore the masters of American Realism and conclude with examples of abstract expressionism. The Wallraf exhibition titled “Once Upon a Time in America” will be composed of about 130 loaned works from well-known collections and museums in the United States and Europe.
Representing the Arkell Museum's collection are In Front of the Guard-House (Punishment for Intoxication), 1863 by Winslow Homer and The Connoisseur (In the Studio Corner), ca, 1881 by William Merritt Chase.
The exhibition also includes exceptional works from such masters as John Copley, Benjamin West, Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman and Jackson Pollock. Each exemplifies the lively, innovative and experimental nature of American art from the very beginning. Many of the works have never been shown in Europe before. The exhibition will be presented exclusively in Cologne from November 23, 2018, to March 24, 2019, and is being sponsored by Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and supported by the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the state’s arts foundation, Kunststiftung NRW.
