From Spain to Virginia: The Art and Times of Pierre Daura
Oct 30, 2020 – Mar 13, 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.
