William J. Glackens: A Modernist in the Making
September 4, 2015 – October 22, 2018
This exhibition reveals the importance and depth of NSU Art Museum’s extensive collection of artist William J. Glackens (1870-1938), by presenting works from 1896 to 1936 that distinguish him as one of America’s leading modern artists. His early paintings of contemporary life depict the diversity and everyday activities of people living in late 19th and early 20th century Paris and New York City, and ​retreating from them at beaches and lake fronts. He was fascinated by the French Impressionists, especially Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), and studied them and those of other modern artists on multiple visits to France, starting in 1895.
