John Enneking at Vose Galleries

Remember our previous coverage of John Enneking’s painting at Stair Galleries? Here is an opportunity to visit a monograph exhibition of the artist.

Press Release from Vose Galleries:

John Enneking, New England’s most prominent landscape artist of the late 19th century, had a stylistic foot in both the pre-impressionist and impressionist worlds of the period. His frequent journeys to Europe beginning in the 1870s exposed Enneking to nearly every major artistic movement during this time of radical experimentation. The Moods of New England, our sixth exhibition of the artist’s work since his death, features over fifteen landscapes that illustrate his diversity of style, and demonstrate his extraordinary talent for capturing the many moods of his native surroundings. Viewable through December 31 in the gallery. A full-color catalogue will be available for $10 p.p.

About Hui

Wang Hui lived from 1632 - 1717 and followed in the footprints of his great grandfathers, grandfather, father and uncles and learned painting at a very early age. He was later taught by two contemporary masters, Zhang Ke and Wang Shimin, who taught him to work in the tradition of copying famous Chinese paintings. This is most likely the reason why critics claim that his work is conservative and reflects the Yuan and Song traditions. One critic claimed that "his landscape paintings reflect his nostalgic attachment to classical Chinese aesthetics. Along with the other Wangs, Wang Hui helped to perpetuate the tradition of copying the ancient masters rather than creating original work.
