    Press Releases ?
    • December 7, 1928: The Brooklyn Museum announces a special exhibition of a group of oil paintings, water colors and pastels by the late Charles Caryl Coleman, the eminent American artist whose death on December 5th has just been announced in the newspapers. The exhibition is on view on the third floor of the Museum in one of the east galleries and will open to the public on Sunday, December 9th. It will continue through the holidays.

      The Museum feels that this is an appropriate showing due to the close relations that it had with Mr. Coleman. Mr. Coleman was an artist of international reputation as is evidenced by the Museum's who possess his works and by his connections with artists abroad. In this country his pictures hang in the Brooklyn Museum, the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, the Detroit Institute, the St. Louis Museum, the Louisville Museum of Fine Arts. He was a member of the National Academy of Design, the National Arts Club, the Players, and the London Arts Club and an Associate member of the Newspaper Artists' Association and the Order of the Loyal Legion.

      Mr. Coleman residence was the island of Capri for the last fifty years. However, he made several visits to the United States during this time. As a young man he returned from Italy to take part in the Civil War as a Union Soldier. In 1866 he returned to Europe and painter in London, Paris, Rome and in the Villa Narcissus, his home on the island of Capri.

      The pictures shown by the Museum comprise religious subjects, for which he was famous, as well as a group of water colors and pastels of the eruptions of Vesuvius. He was interested in catching the various atmospheric effects and changes made by the volcano on the clouds and on the surface of the Bay of Naples. Also in the exhibition there are many other works illustrating the charm, and beauty of Italy.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
