Demuth Museum Opens Charles Demuth: Demuth in the City of Lights Exhibition

The Demuth Museum presents a new exhibition Demuth in the City of Lights. On view: July 8 – August 28, 2011.

Charles Demuth, Beach at Etretat, c.1913, watercolor on paper on board, 13 3/4 x 10 in., Private Collection

This exhibition focuses on Charles Demuth’s (1883-1935) three sojourns in Paris and features works by Demuth drawn from the Demuth Museum’s permanent collection as well as private collections. Demuth’s time spent in Paris was crucial to his development of a mature artistic style and helped him form a wholly American art form later known as Precisionism. This unique exhibit will investigate how Demuth’s artistic and social experiences in Paris contributed to his artistic development. Demuth, like other American artists and writers of his time, felt the urge to take part in the cultural revolution occurring in Paris and this exhibit will allow visitors to understand how Demuth experienced the City of Lights a century ago.
