Felrath Hines and the Question of Color

This project—curated by Andrea Stahlman, the museum's Fred W. Hicks III Fellow for academic year 2012–2013—traced the development of African-American artist Felrath Hines through an early intaglio print and painting; a watercolor; a pastel and its study drawing; and a mature oil on canvas. In a sustained analysis of these specially selected works, the exhibition investigated the artist's chromatic experiments and his belief in the universality of aesthetic expression.
