How does a painting come to be? This exhibition explores the question by looking closely at one of Sheldon Museum of Art’s masterpieces, Arch Hotel, painted in 1929 by Stuart Davis. Prints and drawings made by the artist while living in Paris—including key loans from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art—are shown alongside the canvas to help shed light on its formal qualities, historical and geographic context, and artistic legacy.

Art critic and curator Karen Wilkin will discuss Stuart Davis’s masterful painting “Arch Hotel” and the energetic zeitgeist of 1920s Paris. She contributes regularly to the Wall Street Journal, Hudson Review, and The New Criterion, and teaches at the New York Studio School.

Admission is free.
