Montgomery Museum show includes Picasso, Mapplethorpe,

The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is set to open a new show that includes still-life works by Pablo Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe, Robert Mapplethorpe and other major artists.

The show opens July 3 and continues through mid-October.

The show, called "Objects of Wonder: Four Centuries of Still Life from the Norton Museum of Art," features a wide-ranging selection of  still-life paintings, sculptures, photographs, and objets d'art from the collection of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The show encompasses the many ways artists use still life to communicate subtle symbolic, iconic messages, to fool the eye into thinking the viewer is seeing the actual object and ways contemporary artists have used modern media and perspectives to  recreate the age old genre.


The exhibition will also include works by photographer Edward Weston, paintings by 19th-century European and American painters such as Gustave Courbet and William M. Harnett as well as paintings and sculpture by 18th-century Chinese artists and 17th-century Dutch, Flemish, and Spanish masters are also included.


The exhibition is sponsored locally by the Aaron Aronov Family Foundation, Laura and Barrie Harmon, Jackson Thornton & Co., Michelle and Daniel Hughes, and The James W. Wilson, Jr. and Wynona W. Wilson Family Foundation. ##
