Eternal Summer: The Art of Edward Henry Potthast

June 08, 2013 - September 08, 2013

 

PotthastCincinnati native Edward Henry Potthast is celebrated for his sun-filled paintings of Americans at the shore. This exhibition of 90 works is the first to explore the full range of this American Impressionist’s art, featuring alongside his famous beach pictures portrayals of European peasants and agricultural laborers, harbor views, landscapes and portraits. With sketchbooks, watercolors, pastels, prints, and oil paintings, the exhibition will reveal his accomplishments across media, from studies to finished works of art. A catalogue published by D. Giles, Ltd., will explore Potthast’s life and work in depth and include a conservation study of his techniques.
