Glimpses into the Golden Age

This installation, curated by the Cornell Fine Arts Museum's 2013–2014 Fred W. Hicks III Fellow Amanda McRae ('15),  strategically coincided with a show of Old Master paintings on view at the Orlando Museum of Art:  Rembrandt, Rubens, Gainsborough and the Golden Age of Painting from the Collection of the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Against the amazing scientific and geographic discoveries and political and religious changes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the professional artists of Western Europe achieved an apogee of technique and content. This exhibition project provided the opportunity for CFAM, housing the area’s only encyclopedic museum collection, to highlight several works in its own possession by artists featured in OMA’s corresponding presentation.

Giovanni Domineco Tiepolo, (Italian, 1727-1804), St. John Gualbert (Contemplating the Crucifix), c.1753, Oil on Canvas, 24 1/2 x 17 3/4 in., Gift of the Myers Family, Mr. and Mrs.John C. Myers, Jr., R1942 and June Reinhold Myers, R1941, Cornell Fine Arts Museum, 1961.04
