Going Home: Paintings by Anne Goldthwaite (1869–1944)
March 15 through November 06, 2016
Painter and printmaker Anne Goldthwaite was a native Montgomerian who spent the majority of her career in New York City. While she resided on East Tenth Street in Manhattan for most of the year, she valued her routine summertime visits to her family back home in Montgomery and the surrounding areas. During these visits she made drawings and paintings that reflected her love of her family home, the townscape, and the culture of the South.
The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts is fortunate to hold more than 500 works by Goldthwaite in our permanent collection, the majority of them limited edition etchings, lithographs and other works on paper. Through the generosity of her family and other members of the community, however, we also have a broad representation of her oils on canvas. This exhibition will feature a selection of these paintings, and two rare examples of her sculpture, most of which depict people and places that she knew here in Montgomery.
Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
