The Finest Eye: A Symposium on Frederic Church

Reynolda House Museum of American Art, Spring 2018

 
 

Poster

Featuring a collaged image of the painter’s eye (taken by Mathew Brady), this poster was inspired by the detailed sketches inside the exhibition “Frederic Church: A Painter’s Pilgrimage.” Printed two-color risograph, Church’s own sketches of Jerusalem ornate the background. The centrally-located eye is a subtle reminder of Church’s own finished masterworks that feature a hypnotic, and also centrally-located sun that permeates his landscapes.
