Papier Français: French Works on Paper

February 15 - May 25, 2014

Pablo Picasso, Fumeur (Smoker), 1964, color aquatint and soft-ground etching, 18 x 13 ¼ in., gift of Dr. and Mrs. John Huston Jr., 75.2.
While best known for its exemplary collection of American art, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art also possesses an extensive collection of French works, mostly works on paper. Due largely to the generosity of Peter O. Stamats, this collection stretches from the 17th century prints of Jaques Callot documenting the disasters of war, through the Rococo works of Jean-Honoré Fragonard in the 18th century, to landscapes and city life in the 19th century, and modernist works by Picasso, Braque, and others in the 20th century.

This exhibition looks at the creations of artists working in France over the course of the past 400 years, revealing many of the major European art movements during that time.

This exhibition is made possible in part by a Program Fund Grant of The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
