|George Daniell: Picturing Monhegan Island|
March 1, 2014 - August 3, 2014
This spring, the PMA will showcase an intimate selection of photographs and drawings that George Daniell (United States, 1911-2002) created on Monhegan Island during the summer of 1936, at the advent of his artistic career. In search of adventure and escape from a sweltering August in New York City, Daniell sojourned to Maine, where he spent the month fervently documenting the island that captured his heart and imagination. Drawn from the PMA’s permanent collection, the featured works show the young artist honing his eye for composition and tonal value while depicting Monhegan’s distinctive topography and character with its shingled cottages, hardy people, and wistful afternoons.
Corporate sponsorship is provided by Bath Savings Institution.
