In 2020, the National Museum of Wildlife Art initiated the Carl Rungius Catalogue Raisonné, with a goal to document all of the acclaimed artist’s finished paintings. The Museum holds the largest collection of work by Rungius in the United States and he plays a key part in Museum exhibits and programs. The Catalogue Raisonné project is generously sponsored by The Thomas and Elizabeth Grainger Family Charitable Fund and the Robert S. and Grayce B. Kerr Foundation.
This project will culminate in an online digital resource of interest to anyone wishing to investigate Rungius’s life and work. A major touring exhibit and masterworks publication are also in the planning stages. See the full press release here.
This page will be updated as our multiyear project progresses, but, at this juncture, we are creating the policies and procedures that will serve as our foundation. We are currently accepting submissions for works for possible inclusion in the catalogue raisonné. To submit a work for consideration, please email Dr. Adam Duncan Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
