This Art Suitcase provides an introduction to the art of landscape. The script explores the theme that as artists depict the landscape, they are also revealing much about themselves: their philosophy, experiences, origins, and historical time period. Included are landscapes by Japanese artist Ando Hiroshige; Native American artist Blackbear Bosin; American artists Georgia O’Keefe, Howard Pyle, Richard Diebenkorn, and Thomas Hart Benton; and several artists from the Montana region.
This presentation compares, contrasts, and investigates how artists from different cultures and time periods have depicted the horse. Included are important masters from the history of art, historical American Western artists, historical and contemporary Native American artists, and contemporary Montana and regional artists.
This Art Suitcase presents contemporary regional artwork from the Yellowstone Art Museum’s permanent collection. The suitcase script draws on artists’ responses to a circulated questionnaire. Themes explored include “The Art Experience,” “Seeing the Land,” “Our People, Yesterday and Today,” “Forms, Patterns, and Rhythms of Nature,” “Artists Help Us See in New Ways,” and “What Is Real?”
