    The Medici’s Painter: Carlo Dolci and 17th-Century Florence is the first exhibition in America devoted to the luminous and meticulously rendered paintings and drawings of Italian artist Carlo Dolci (1616–1687). It provides an unprecedented opportunity to study the life and oeuvre of 17th-century Florence’s most important painter, whose reverence for detail, brilliant palette, and seemingly enameled surfaces earned the favor of patronage by the powerful Medici family.

    The Davis Museum’s most ambitious Old Master project to date, The Medici’s Painter includes over fifty autograph works—pictures of the highest pictorial, technical, and spiritual qualities—through exceptional loans from the world’s major museums and rarely seen works from private collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Uffizi Gallery and Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Louvre Museum in Paris, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, among others.

    The Medici’s Painter is curated by Eve Straussman-Pflanzer, Head of the European Art Department & Elizabeth and Allan Shelden Curator of European Paintings at the Detroit Institute of Arts, with consulting curator Francesca Baldassari. Straussman-Pflanzer was previously the Assistant Director of Curatorial Affairs and Senior Curator of Collections at the Davis Museum.

    Generously supported by Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis Museum, Davis World Cultures Fund, E. Franklin Robbins Art Museum Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts Museum Program Fund, Anonymous '70 Endowed Davis Museum Program Fund, The Judith Blough Wentz '57 Museum Programs Fund, The Samuel H. Kress Foundation, The Robert Lehman Foundation, Inc., and the Office of the Provost and Dean of Wellesley College. Grants were received from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Samuel H. Kress Foundation, and The Robert Lehman Foundation, Inc.

    - Ann Kirk Warren '50 was an avid collector of works on paper, with impeccable taste and capacious interests. Her entire collection—which encompasses works from European old masters to American prints and drawings—comes by generous bequest to the Davis Museum, where it adds immeasurably to our holdings. This first selection of many demonstrates the breadth and richness of the Warren Collection of more than two hundred works on paper, in honor of her generous donation.

    - Encompassing diverse media and materials—including plaster, tinfoil, video, printmaking, found objects and performance—Daphne Wright’s work is eerie and unsettling, suggestive and moving. Prayer Project, an installation of meditative video portraits, was installed to dramatic effect in the chapel at the National Trust Tyntesfield as part of her major solo exhibition, Emotional Archeology, organized by the Arnolfini in Bristol in 2016. Curator Josephine Lanyon writes that “These tranquil, often silent, films place religions on an equal footing in their stripped down, human form, showing faith as a part of daily life. We are invited to explore the notion of communion, both in the sense of its religious connotations (a communion with god) but also in the old sense of the word as communication, community, or dialogue with the self or with an ‘other’."

    - Perhaps Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s best-known work, the Vedute di Roma print series was completed over the course of more than three decades, from 1747 until the artist’s death in 1778. This exhibition focuses on Piranesi’s views of Roman memorial monuments and on 18th century approaches to antiquity, along with his contributions to the scholarly advancement of Roman architecture in the nascent field of art history. It also orients Piranesi’s Roman Vedute within the context of print culture and in relation to the Grand Tour. Curated by Meredith Fluke, Kemper Curator of Academic Programs and Kimberly Cassibry, Assistant Professor of Art, Wellesley College. Generously supported by the Mary Tebbetts Wolfe ‘54 Davis Museum Program Fund.

    - On loan for the spring semester from the Currier Museum of Art, Dedham Lock and Mill (1820), a depiction of the serene English countryside by pioneering landscapist John Constable, hangs next to the Davis Museum's Mount Washington from the Valley of Conway (1851) by Hudson River School painter John Frederick Kensett. This pairing creates the enviable opportunity for close side-by-side analysis of the multivalent influences and philosophical convictions that informed British and American landscape painting in the 19th century.
