Lowe Art Museum in Miami presents an the exhibition of the work of Gari Melchers: “An American Impressionist at Home and Abroad“.
The Detroit-born artist left behind an artistic legacy that is as varied as it is compelling. From engaging peasant scenes inspired by his years at the Egmonds, Holland to intimate portraits of mothers and their children, Melchers‘ oeuvre is inflected by a dynamic range of influences, including Impressionism and Symbolism.
From this broad range of sources, Melchers created a style that was uniquely his own; remarkable for its insistent structural rigor and careful draughtsmanship, as well as a lyrical palette and keen observance of humanity.
This exhibition, which is jointly curated by the Lowe Art Musem and the Gari Melchers Home and Studio, surveys more than a half-century of Melchers’ career with key examples of the genres he favored, including landscape, genre scenes, and portraiture.
