The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, presents the exhibition Canvas and Cast: Highlights from the Bruce Museum’s Art Collection from February 11 throught June 18, 2017. Featuring 35 paintings and 7 sculptures from the Bruce’s growing collection, the show celebrates long-time favorites and many recent acquisitions representing significant moments in the history of art from the 16th through the 20th centuries. This exhibition, organized by Peter C. Sutton, The Susan E. Lynch Executive Director, and curated by Courtney Skipton Long, Zvi Grunberg Postdoctoral Fellow 2016/17 at the Bruce Museum, examines art historical themes including sculpted and painted portraits, narrative scenes and statues, landscapes, still lifes, and genre scenes. Canvas and Cast explores artists’ handling of different media – bronze, marble, oil, pastel, acrylic and collage – through examples of 16th-century Dutch portraiture, 19th-century American figural sculpture, academic style painting, and French and American landscapes from the turn of the 20th century. Canvas and Cast: Highlights from the Bruce Museum’s Art Collection is generously supported by The Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund and the Connecticut Office of the Arts.
