Judith Leiber: Earthly Delights

Judith Leiber (American, born in Budapest, Hungary in 1921), known for the creation of exquisitely designed couture women’s accessories which blur the boundaries between function and art, adorns minaudières and compact cases with semi-precious stones. Her creations also include day bags, belts and pillboxes. Beautifully detailed both inside and out, each tiny minaudière takes months to fabricate with special attention paid to the construction including the interior details and hardware. Considered one of the  largest repositories of Judith Leiber bags in the United States, the Taubman Museum of Art embraces its diverse collection which is comprised of monkeys, dogs, cats, and babies, as well as several minaudières inspired by other countries as China and Russia.

Audrey Flack

Transient Beauty:
Photographs by Audrey Flack

Organized by the Taubman Museum of Art, this exhibition is culled from the museum’s permanent collection and offers a first time look at a series of dye transfer photographs created in 1983 by New York-based artist Audrey Flack (American, born 1931). A pioneer of the Photorealism art movement, Flack created these works, often as studies for her large scale paintings, with almost microscopic detail while capturing the optical realism one would view if looking through a camera lens.

Audrey Flack’s paintings, photographs and sculptures have received international attention throughout her career. In addition to the Taubman Museum of Art, her work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Among Flack’s public commissions is her Monumental Gateway to the city of Rock Hill, South Carolina, consisting of four twenty-foot high bronze figures on granite pedestals and her study for one of the bronze figures is in the Taubman Museum’s collection titled, Head of Civitas.
