Schools of Thought: Paintings and Drawings from the King University Museum of Fine ArtsSeptember 04, 2015 - January 17, 2016
In December 2003, King University Trustee Neal Caldwell and wife Alice (Morrow) Caldwell (’51) presented King with a group of works from their personal art collection. Since that time, the University has continued to receive gifts from the Caldwells, forming an impressive collection that now features more than 360 original pieces of art and 65 artifacts spanning centuries, genres and media. These original works include such masters as Rembrandt, Corot, Turner, Picasso, Dalí, Toulouse-Lautrec, Whistler, Marsh, Chagall, and Matisse, among others. This exhibition will focus on the academic traditions around the nineteenth century represented in the King University Museum of Fine Arts collection and illuminate the schools of thought that brought them their position in the evolution of aesthetics and content that now define Western art history.
