Last day-"Oliphant" Exhibition



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: University of Virginia Art Museum
Description: Sunday, March 13 from 12-5 pm is your last chance to view the special exhibitions "Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons and Sculpture from the Bush Years" and "With the Line of Daumier"!

"Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons and Sculpture from the Bush Years"
Organized by the Susan Conway Gallery, Santa Fe NM


"With the Line of Daumier"
Organized by the U.Va. Art Museum

January 16 – March 13

Cartoon drawings, pencil sketches, oversized charcoal caricatures, and sculpture in bronze and wax, all featured in the exhibition, articulate the breadth of Oliphant’s artistic production. These objects, some 100 in all, not only exemplify his plastic acumen, but their titles and captions point to his biting satiric wit. Certainly, Oliphant’s efforts place him within a branch of modernism that is rooted in the realist tradition.

To follow up on this idea, the Museum will accompany "Leadership" with an exhibition focusing on the work of Honoré Daumier (1808-1879), who was a major influence on the work of Oliphant. "With the Line of Daumier" will present paintings, drawings, and lithographs by the great French painter and draftsman (including key works on loan from The Phillips Collection and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), as well as a selection of images by great British, French, and American caricaturists of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Together the two exhibitions will clarify the continuing importance of Daumier, the tradition of caricature, and social satire for the art and culture of the present.

"Leadership: Oliphant Cartoons and Sculpture from the Bush Years" is curated by guest curator Susan Conway. "With the Line of Daumier" is curated by Matthew Affron, associate professor, McIntire Department of Art, curator of modern art, U.Va. Art Museum.

Both exhibitions are sponsored by the U.Va. Art Museum Volunteer Board, the Office of the Provost, University of Virginia, the Arts Council, Arts Enhancement Fund, Gladys S. Blizzard Lecture Fund, Alderman Library, and Arts$.
