Exhibition: Frank E. Schoonover: American Visions
December 7 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until May 27, 2019
Frank E. Schoonover: American Visions traces the creative and geographical journey of Golden Age illustrator Frank Earle Schoonover (1877-1972). Schoonover’s dynamic adventure paintings and illustrations for literary classics were inspired by the belief that artists should live what they paint—an adage often repeated by his noted teacher, illustrator Howard Pyle (1853-1911). Among the more than 80 works in the exhibition are Schoonover’s historical book illustrations and dramatically stage adventure paintings for such classic stories as Kidnapped, Robinson Crusoe, Swiss Family Robinson, and Ivanhoe.
