The DAM Publishes New Book About British Art

The Denver Art Museum is celebrating Treasures of British Art 1400–2000: The Berger Collection by Berger Collection curator Kathleen Stuart, the first publication on the collection to appear in 16 years. It features in-depth essays on 50 masterworks by some of the greatest artists of the British school: Hans Holbein the Younger, Anthony van Dyck, Peter Lely, Benjamin West, Angelica Kauffman, Thomas Gainsborough, Thomas Lawrence, George Stubbs, John Singer Sargent, Howard Hodgkin, and Adam Birtwistle.

Stuart will give a lecture on the new book on November 4, 2014 in the Sharp Auditorium at the DAM. The catalog accompanies an exhibition of the same name on view at the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, Maine, from October 2, 2014–January 4, 2015. After that, the exhibition moves to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens in Memphis, Tennessee, January 25–April 19, 2015. It wraps up at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art in Provo, Utah, August 14, 2015–January 5, 2016. Stay tuned for information on the exhibition at the Denver Art Museum.

You can purchase Treasures of British Art at The Shop at the DAM or at our online shop.
