Frank E. Schoonover: American Visions
Gregory Manchess: Above the Timberline
Golden Age illustrator Frank E. Schoonover (1877-1972) created legendary paintings inspired by the belief that artists should live what they paint—an adage often repeated by his noted teacher, illustrator Howard Pyle, and absorbed by his fellow student and friend, N.C. Wyeth. This exhibition will explore the breadth of the artist’s career. A related exhibition focused on the art of contemporary illustrator Gregory Manchess, working in Schoonover’s Golden Age tradition, highlights his lavishly painted novel about the son of a famed polar explorer searching for his father and a lost city buried under snow.
