Renwick Gallery, Washington D.C.




If anyone is going to Washington D.C. before Oct. 23, 2005, make sure you go to the Renwick Gallery!

Although this gallery is supposed to only display craft items, it is currently hosting an exhibition from the American Art Museum.

You can see some beauties - some very famous. I was thrilled to see Sargents' "Elizabeth Winthrop Chanler" and Cecelia Beaux's painting of "Henry Sturgis Drinker (Man with a Cat)" among the works on display.

The Renwick Gallery is just north of the White House, in the D.C. mall area.

I would love to see this in person. This is one of my favorite paintings.

The man with the cat has been one of my favorite paintings for a long time too. Thanks for posting it here, Mike!

Would you believe that it is displayed in a hallway, as is the Sargent I mentioned? The lighting wasn't that great - that was my only frustration. Other paintings were shown in better light.

Kim - you will love this exhibit! Glad you're getting to Washington. I enjoyed the National Gallery too. I had no idea that Vermeer's famous paintings were so small (Woman with the red hat in particular). And the many Rembrandts there were awe-inspiring.

The Freer Museum has a lot of Whistler's and some of his contemporaries' paintings, like Thomas Dewey. Very nice.

If this was a Work In Progress I would have a handful of suggestions.

Not to be contrary but I really think that this is no painting to set up as a standard to follow.

If anyone would play I think that this is a quality subject to learn from. There are good and bad things in this painting and I believe that a friendly discussion about those things would be educative.

Allan,

These are the best images I have this painting.

I don't know why you couldn't have at this painting. If someone would like to step in and defend Ms. Beaux they could. I don't think Ms. Beaux will be one of them.

Maybe we should have a critique section for old "masters" paintings.
