    Marvels and Mirages of Orientalism -

    January 31, 2015 - May 31, 2015

    The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts - 1380 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

    This exhibition on Orientalism, a first for Canada, is based on extensive original research. The show unveils the forgotten figure of a master of the genre, Benjamin-Constant.

    Following in the footsteps of artists like Delacroix, whom he admired, this flamboyant painter's Orientalism is similar to that of Henri Regnault, Mariano Fortuny, Georges Clairin and Jean-Paul Laurens, who also figure largely in the exhibition. Appropriating the stereotypes of a colonial Near East, Benjamin-Constant alternated indolent odalisques and fierce Moors in his large-scale paintings.

    Sculpture in the Age of Donatello

    February 20 - June 14, 2015

    Twenty-three masterpieces of early Florentine Renaissance sculpture, most never seen outside Italy, will be exhibited at MOBIA as the centerpiece of the Museum's tenth anniversary season.

Works by Donatello, Brunelleschi, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia and others were made in the first decades of the fifteenth century for Florence Cathedral ("Il Duomo"), which was then in the last phase of its construction, and are figural complements to Brunelleschi's soaring dome, conveying an analogous sense of courage and human potential. Like the dome, these statues of prophets and saints express the spiritual tension of a faith-driven humanism destined to transform Western culture.

    Whistler in Paris, London, and Venice

    January 30, 2015 - July 19, 2015

    The Yale University Art Gallery - 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT

    This exhibition examines one of the most celebrated artists of the 19th century through the lens of three of his earliest and most innovative sets of etchings, the so-called French, Thames, and Venice Sets. Each set is representative of an important period in Whistler's life: as a student in Paris, absorbing the lessons of his Realist contemporaries and the Old Masters; as an emerging artist in London, forging a name for himself as an etcher; and as a well-known artist and teacher in Venice.

    The Critique of Reason: Romantic Art, 1760-1860

    March 6, 2015 - July 26, 2015

    The Yale University Art Gallery - 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT

The show comprises paintings, sculptures, medals, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs by such iconic artists as William Blake, Géricault, Goya, and Turner. The broad range of work selected challenges the traditional notion of the Romantic artist as a brooding genius given to introversion and fantasy. Instead, the exhibition's eight thematic sections juxtapose arresting works that reveal the Romantics as attentive explorers of their natural and cultural worlds.

    Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye

    June 28 - October 4, 2015

    National Gallery of Art - 6th Street and Constitution Avenue NW Washington, DC

Some 45 paintings from 1875 to 1882—the period in which Caillebotte was fully engaged with the impressionist movement—will provide a focused understanding of the provocative character and complexity of his artistic contributions, from spectacular images of the new public spaces designed by Baron Haussmann to visual meditations on leisure-time activities in and around Paris.

    Castiglione: Lost Genius

    August 9 - November 8, 2015

A forgotten master from the Italian baroque, Castiglione was a self-proclaimed genius, whose artworks entered the Royal Collection in 1762. The exhibition explores Castiglione's mastery of art and how he produced brilliant works despite his turbulent private life that prevented him from becoming more widely known.
