Through 167 photographs and illustrated books, the Raymond collection tells two stories: one of a radical moment in early twentieth-century art and the other of an impassioned collector whose adventurous spirit and vision harmonized perfectly with his subject.
Influenced by the Harlem Renaissance, Jacob Lawrence (1917–2000) believed that art should be a quest for both personal and communal identity, a philosophy he advocated throughout his long and distinguished career.
Famed landscape painter Frederic Church (1826-1900) had a long-standing love affair with the natural beauty of Maine. Over the course of three decades, he visited often, creating intimately scaled sketches in a variety of media that served to inspire his major works.
This exhibition focuses on relationships among the photographic work of three artists active during the 1970s that drew on ideas of surrealist/Dada culture of the 1920s and 1930s and influenced succeeding generations of photographers and media artists. Each embraced photography as one element of an artistic practice guided as much by literature, philosophy, and an attention to popular culture as by classical formal concerns of the medium. Yet, photographic process and context remained important to them.
