Below, Yosemite Valley by Alberet Bierstadt, ca.1865.
The lovely painting below is Waterfall at Ornans, ca.1874, by Gustave Courbet.
The Hyde House is also full of historic furnishings. This is a favorite of mine; a folding chair! ca.1650, Italian.
In the main museum gallery, there is currently an exhibit called Pulled, Pressed, and Screened: Important American Prints. Again, forgive the photo quality/reflections/etc. Below, by Andy Warhol, Birmingham Race Riot, 1964, is an appropriated and manipulated image from Life magazine. Why doesn't the photographer of the original image get any credit for this?
I'm not much of a print-maker myself, but I know what I like (and don't like, of course!). I rather enjoyed this piece below because I can tell it's an etching, and I like the expressive line and movemen in the drawing. I have inadvertently deleted the names of the artists in the pieces below. I apologize.
My favorite pieces in the print show were these:
In the smaller gallery is an exhibit of work titled Audrey Flacke: Heroines. Here's a sampling.
I had to smile at the glitter and sparkles used in some of the colored pieces.
Oh, to prove I was there - here I am with hubs in a cool mirror in Hyde House. I love the asymmetric design of the top.
