“William J. Glackens: From Pencil to Paint”

June 16, 2019 - January 6, 2020   |  
NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale
| Free–$12, General Admission

Comprised of more than 100 works, this exhibition reveals Glackens’ brilliance as an illustrator as well as his ongoing reliance on drawing throughout his career as one of America’s most celebrated painters. Included are such works as Glackens’ poignant drawings conveying the emotions and scenes of soldiers at battle, created when he was sent to Cuba by McClure’s Magazine to document the Spanish American War in 1898. Numerous other drawings and preparatory sketches, along with 32 paintings from the 1900s-1930s, illuminate the ways he developed and refined forms and compositions. All works are drawn from the Museum’s world-renowned William J. Glackens art and archival collection bequeathed to the Museum by his son, Ira Glackens at the time of his death in 1990, and subsequently by the Sansom Foundation founded in the 1950s by Ira and wife, Nancy Glackens.  William J. Glackens: From Pencil to Paint is organized by NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and is curated by Barbara Buhler Lynes, Ph.D., Sunny Kaufman Senior curator.
