Continuing Exhibitions

Louis Dewis: An Artist’s Life in France: Inspired by such French masters of landscape painting as Corot, Monet, and Cézanne, Louis Dewis (1872-1946) painted scenes of cities, villages, and the countryside throughout Belgium and France. Working primarily from 1916 until his death in 1946, Dewis was regarded by critics of his time as one of his country’s most distinguished landscape painters, contributing to a revival of traditional landscape painting in France and Belgium during the years between the world wars. This revival, which included such renowned artists as André Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, and André Dunoyer de Segonzac, sought to assert nature as a preeminent subject for modern art in France. Louis Dewis: An Artist’s Life in France places Dewis’s work in historical context and seeks to reestablish his role in the story of 20th-century French and Belgian art. Organized by the Orlando Museum of Art, the exhibition debuted January 25 – May 5, 2019, showcasing more than 100 paintings, drawings, prints and career memorabilia. This ongoing exhibition presents a selection of important paintings and other works from throughout the artist’s life. Paintings from the entire collection, including many that have been newly restored are periodically rotated offering visitors a fresh view of Dewis’s work throughout the year. The Orlando Museum of Art is grateful to Mr. Brad Face for lending to this exhibition works from his extensive Louis Dewis collection. American Journey: Two Centuries of Art and Culture: This exhibition will present a new interpretation of the Orlando Museum of Art’s extensive collection of American Art. The collection represents many key developments in American art from the Colonial period to the present, and conveys not only the story of artistic accomplishments, but also stories of the country’s history and culture. Rather than taking a chronological approach to the subject, this exhibition will present thematic categories in which both historic and contemporary art is seen side by side, emphasizing both commonalties and contrasting ideas across time. Thematic topics will examine the country’s evolving national identity, civic life, and underling social values as represented in paintings, sculptures and photographs from the Museum’s collection. ‘Family and Friends’ brings together family portraits from the 18th century to the present revealing how the nature of family and other intimate social relationships have evolved. ‘Honoring the Individual’ looks at who artists chose to memorialize in portraits and why. ‘Allegories’ addresses the use of symbolism and narratives to tell stories about aspirational ideals as well as social critique. ‘Picturing Eden’ surveys nature and landscape as an expression of the country’s geographical and spiritual identity. ‘On the Farm’, examines the changing patterns of rural life and agricultural practice. ‘Road Trip’ reflects the rise of the automobile and the highway as a central feature of the American landscape. ‘The City’ presents images of the urban landscape and urban life as expressions of modernity and the challenges it brings. Each section of the exhibition includes works by prominent artists of the past and present including George Inness, John Singer Sargent, Georgia O’Keeffe, Malcolm Morley, Nick Cave, and Kerry James Marshall.
