The Simple Pleasures of Still Life
September 26, 2015-January 31, 2016
The Musée du Louvre, the High Museum of Art, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and
the Terra Foundation for American Art will present the final installation in their four-year
collaboration focusing on the history of American art. American Encounters: The Simple
Pleasures of Still Life explores how late 18th- and early 19th-century American artists adapted
European still-life tradition to American taste, character and experience. The culminating
presentation of the American Encounters series, The Simple Pleasures of Still Life follows
previous installations examining important genres in American art, including portraiture,
landscape and genre paintings.
The masterpieces in The Simple Pleasures of Still Life speak to the range of the still-life genre in
the U.S. from the simple table top presentations of Raphelle Peale, Martin Johnson Heade,
Joseph Biays Ord, and William Sidney Mount to the sly, trick-of-the-eye compositions by De
Scott Evans, John Haberle, William Michael Harnett and George Cope. Two paintings by
John-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin and Abraham Mignon demonstrate the European examples
frequently emulated by American artists first experimenting with still life in the early 1800s. The
presentation at the High will be supplemented with four additional paintings drawn from the
museum's extensive holdings in American art, including works by William Mason Brown, Joseph
Decker and John Frederick Peto.
Following its presentation at the Louvre (Feb. 5-April 27, 2015), The Simple Pleasures of Still
Life will travel to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark. (May 16-Sept. 14,
2015), and the High (Sept. 26, 2015-Jan. 31, 2016).
Saturday, October 24th from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
It's time again for our bi-annual field trip to the High Museum of Art!
