Mediterranea: American Art from the Graham D. Williford Collection

April 13-June 29, 2014

By the late 19th century, American artists began to show an expanded interest in points beyond the traditional cultural centers of France, Italy and Germany – casting an eye on Spain, the Holy Land, Egypt and much of northern Africa. As popular travel writers such as George William Curtis and Mark Twain attracted American attention to the region, artistic luminaries including Frank Duveneck, Charles Caryl Coleman and William Merritt Chase became captivated by the aspects of nature and culture they believed to define the Mediterranean: its distinctive flora, the legacy of the Greco-Roman past, and the influence of Christianity and Islam.

While reasons for Mediterranean travel varied among American artists, the visual records of their travels demonstrate a growing awareness of a palpable unity in the region. Mediterranea distills this fascination for contemporary viewers in one stunning exhibition, offering a unique exploration of the ways American artists understood, interpreted and portrayed Mediterranean culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Organized by the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma, this exhibition is made possible through a generous loan from the Jean and Graham Devoe Williford Charitable Trust.
