    Exhibition date extended through November 4, 1945
    Outstanding examples selected from the John W. Poole Collection recently purchased by the Museum, and additional pieces received as gifts from other sources.

    LIFE ON THE MISSISSIPPI
    October 5 - December 10, 1945
    An exhibition of about 60 lithographs and engravings depicting the days of the flatboats, steamboats, riverpilots, and midnight races, plantations and luxury “showboats” of the Mississippi before and after the Civil War. The greater portion of the lithographs were issued by Currier and Ives and other American lithographic houses which flourished in the 19th century. The majority of the prints have been lent through the courtesy of Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois.

    THE NEGRO ARTIST COMES OF AGE
    PORTRAITS OF DISTINGUISHED NEGRO CITIZENS
    November 2 - November 25, 1945
    An exhibition of 61 paintings and sculptures, which originated at the Albany Institute of History and Art, and is now being circulated by The American Federation of Arts. A group of portraits of distinguished Negro citizens will be shown with this exhibition.

    LANDSCAPE
    November 8, 1945--January 1, 1946
    European and American landscape painting, with loans from many museums and private collections (about 70 canvases), showing the development of both the philosophical and visual points of view towards landscape from the early fourteenth century to the present. There will be a detailed and illustrated catalogue. In connection with this large exhibition, the Museum is planning two smaller shows which will be on view at the same time: landscape water colors from the Museum collection and a group of unusual landscape photographs.

    PORTRAITS OF CHILDREN
    From the Museum’s Print Collection
    December 14--January 6, 1946
    A special Christmas exhibition of Children’s Portraits by 19th and 20th century artists, from the Museum’s Print Collection.

    OUR FABRIC HERITAGE
    January 15 - March 30, 1946
    A three-dimensional history of textiles. The inventions and developments in all phases of textile arts and techniques, from the earliest fibers, dyes and looms to the present, will be illustrated by maps, models and materials. In connection with the exhibition there will be lectures by leading authorities on such phases of the fabric arts as the development of historical and synthetic fibers, printing and finishing of materials, and the technological skills in the field. These lectures will be for the professional public and admission will be by invitation only.

  • November 5, 1945 The Brooklyn Museum is holding an important exhibition of European and American landscape painting from the fourteenth century to the present. The exhibition, which will open November 9 and continue through January 1, 1946, will include about 80 paintings, many of them loans from other museums and private collections.

    The exhibition will illustrate the development of both the philosophical and visual points of view toward landscape. Henry-Russell Hitchcock of Wesleyan University, has written a foreword to the catalogue of the exhibition in which he discusses the attitudes which have controlled landscape painting in the past and the possibility that “a new aerial vision may renew the art of landscape painting in the twentieth century.”

    The list of paintings to be included in the exhibition (see attached sheet) was compiled by R. Kirk Askew, Jr., who thereby established the concept and character of the show. The choice of paintings was governed by the philosophy and climate of opinion of the period and the artist. It is the first time that landscape has been presented from this approach in an art exhibition.

    PRESS PREVIEW: Monday, November 5, from 10 to 4.
