Joseph Stella: Visionary Nature

Through Sunday, January 15
Norton Museum of Art

Joseph Stella: Visionary Nature is the first major museum exhibition to examine American modernist Joseph Stella’s portrayal of natural subjects. Although he is best known for his dynamic, Futurist paintings of New York, after World War I Stella began to explore the natural world in his art. Through lyrical and exuberant depictions of flowers, plants, and birds that were linked to his nostalgia for his native Italy, he sought a spiritual antidote to the industrial technology that had caused the war’s unprecedented destruction. The Norton will be the first venue of this exhibition of approximately 90 paintings and works on paper that is co-organized by the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the High Museum of Art.
