Описание: The 19th-century holdings of the Walters Art Gallery are unique amongst museum collections of art from this period. Not only were William T. Walters (1819-94) and his son Henry (1848-1931) unique in purchasing extensively the art from their own `Gilded Age', but they also acquired works from many key artistic periods. The result is a collection of 19th-century art which undoubtedly reflects the the interests of its founders and gives viewers an opportunity to trace the development of 19th-century art within a historical context. This new title presents the highlights of this amazing collection. These include a series of paintings by the foremost masters of the Romantic era, J. A. D. Ingres and Eugene Delacroix, as well as landscapes by painters associated with the Barbizon school. Likewise, the `transportation' series of watercolours that William Walters bought from Honore Daumier in 1864 is generally recognised as the high point of nineteenth-century Realism. However, it is in the field of academic art, which dominated French art during the Second Empire (1852-70) that The Walters excels. The conflicts between the academic artists - especially Jean-Leon Gerome and Alexandre Cabanels - and the impressionists is demonstrated by The Walters collection. The work of Edouard Manet is presented in close proximity to that of his teacher, Thomas Couture, and the landscapes of Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley are juxtaposed with a highly idealised, poetic vision of ancient Egypt by Charles Gleyre, with whom they trained.

Описание: "Damaged Romanticism" features 15 internationally recognised contemporary artists whose work, in painting, sculpture, installations, and photography based
media, belongs neither to a style nor a traditional 'school', but is thematically linked by a visual representation of how stubborn optimism, rather than utopianism, triumphs in the face of
daily adversity. In her opening essay "Damaged Romanticism: A Mirror of Modern Emotion", Terrie Sultan offers an overview of the concept behind the exhibition and explains how the
chosen works give form to contradictory sentiments of disillusionment, and defiance.David Pagel, in Romanticism's Aftermath, considers the role of Romanticism and Neoclassicism in
the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and how 'damaged romanticism' is a reinterpretation of this. The links between art and film are further explored by Colin Gardner in the third
essay, From here to eternity.
Preceding the main catalogue is a short story by Nic
Flynn, a crystal formed entirely of holes, a new work of fiction written especially for this exhibition.
