Notre-Dame and Beyond: Prints and Watercolors of Churches and Cathedrals
Kurdian Gallery

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, medieval Gothic architecture -- originally built more than 500 years before -- was suddenly popular again. As Gothic fever swept Europe and America, artists increasingly looked to these centuries-old monuments for inspiration. From luminous watercolors to exacting architectural renderings, Notre-Dame and Beyond features elegant works on paper from WAMs permanent collection that chronicle the shifting understanding and relevance of these iconic buildings. Their continued importance even in 2020 was recently highlighted by the outpouring of emotion that occurred after last springs fire at Paris Notre-Dame Cathedral. The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the spring Howard E. Wooden Lecture Rebuilding Notre-Dame: A Close Look at the 3D Model That Could Guide Restoration.
