European Art

The JSMA has reinstalled its gallery of European art to feature a new selection of works arranged both chronologically and thematically. The gallery, named for donors John and Ethel MacKinnon, was last renovated in 2012 to celebrate the gift of the Roy and Jeanne Neville collection of European paintings and prints to the JSMA. New interpretive labels feature research conducted by student interns and members of the curatorial staff on the history and meaning of these works. Works on view include visitor favorites, such as The Last Audience of the Hapsburgs (1918), by Artur von Ferraris (Hungarian, 1856–1936), and Ballet Dancers (1912), a vibrant double-sided painting of two cabaret dancers by Max Pechstein (German, 1881–1955), last on view in 2013. One wall is reserved for rotations of light-sensitive materials, such as prints and photography, from the collection, as well as selections from the museum’s Masterworks on Loan program. The JSMA is grateful to the generosity of John and Ethel MacKinnon and Roy and Jeanne Neville for their support of the growing collection of European art.
