Tabletop Art History: Still Life from the Collection

Sep 12, 2014 - Jan 4, 2015

This intimate and colorful exhibition uses still life painting to tell the story of American art. From polished photographic apples, to loosely, but lovingly, painted bowls on the kitchen table, Tabletop Art History offers the opportunity to see how artists can use one theme in many different styles. Along the way, we also learn the difference between "realism," "impressionism," and "expressionism." Twenty-four of the CMA's greatest still life paintings are displayed.
