Arthur Wesley Dow: Nearest to the Divine

Arthur Wesley Dow, Willows in the Meadow from Ipswich Prints, First Set, 1902. Photo-mechanical relief reproduction on paper, 7 x 8 inches. Partial gift of George and Barbara Wright and partial purchase as the gift of R. Crosby Kemper through the R. Crosby Kemper Foundation, 2007.10.27.6

presents paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs that reveal the Ipswich-born artist’s radically anti-academic, mystical approach to artmaking.

Drawn almost entirely from the Addison's collection, this exhibition explores the prodigious and multifaceted oeuvre of the Ipswich-born artist, educator, and theoretician, Arthur Wesley Dow. Featuring over 100 works including photographs, prints, drawings, paintings, and ephemera, this exhibition highlights not only the profound beauty of Dow's groundbreaking artistic contributions across media but reveals his radically anti-academic, intuitive, and inherently democratic approach to artmaking.
