Drawn from the remarkable holdings of Kendra and Allan Daniel, this exhibition re-establishes the long-forgotten but highly esteemed career of Nura Woodson Ulreich, known simply as Nura. The show explores the artist’s alluring and highly individualized interpretation of childhood. Nura’s modernist approach, acquired from her time in Paris in the 1920s, resulted in stylized images of children whom she portrayed with animals, books, and musical instruments, though rarely with an adult in sight. Nura’s figures are distinguished by their rounded forms, rosy cheeks, and wavy hair. She shows them in ethereal landscapes and indistinct interior settings. Her compositions capture an essence of childhood imbued with innocence and enigma. The Carle is pleased to re-introduce Nura after 70 years away from the public eye.
