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

If you’re anywhere near Jackson, I’d recommend that you drive 5 min out of town and visit this beautiful place. The sculptures are extraordinary and the building itself is just a unique place that looks like it grew out of the hillside.
