About the Exhibit

Long Term Installation

Many artists working today were directly inspired by the European artists featured in the Widener Gallery. Masterworks by Romantic painters Edwin Landseer, Théodore Géricault, Jean-Léon Gérôme, and Rosa Bonheur complement work by the acknowledged forefathers of wildlife art, including famous wildlife artists Richard Friese, Wilhelm Kuhnert, Bruno Liljefors, and Carl Rungius. Important European sculpture is also on view, highlighting Antoine-Louis Barye, Auguste Rodin, and Rembrandt Bugatti.

What People Are Saying

This museum was not only beautiful but expansive in its art collections. We visited with our 9 yr.-old granddaughter and she thoroughly enjoyed it as much as we did.
