From Spain to Virginia: The Art and Times of Pierre Daura

Friday, October 30, 2020 - Sunday, March 07, 2021

Born in Spain, Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura (1896-1976) enjoyed a successful career that spanned several decades and countries. Through more than 30 paintings and watercolors, visitors will be able to experience Daura’s unique and rich artistry: landscapes that capture his native Spain and adopted France and Virginia, still lifes that echo those of French artist Paul Cézanne and portraits of family and friends. The exhibition highlights the Taubman’s extensive holdings of Daura’s work and includes several loans from southern museums and private collections.  

From Spain to Virginia: The Art and Times of Pierre Daura is curated by the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia.

With special thanks to Martha Daura for her thoughtful guidance and instrumental support and to William U. Eiland, Nelda Damiano and Julia Kilgore from the Georgia Museum of Art for their expertise and collaboration.

Exhibition and education support is generously presented by the Daura Foundation.
