Art of the South at Colonial Williamsburg

February 15, 2014  |  It's been more than half a century since the groundbreaking Loan Exhibition of Southern Furniture 1640-1820 held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in 1952, and much has happened since then, not just in the study of southern furniture but of the decorative arts of the re­gion as a whole.  It is time, indeed, to re­visit the subject on a grand scale, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is doing so with A Rich and Varied Culture: The Material World of the Early South, a new long-term exhibition that opens on February 15 at the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. It will include some 350 objects drawn from Colonial Williamsburg's collection as well as from fourteen pri­vate collectors and ten oth­er institutions, chief among them the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with which CWF recently inaugurated an in­novative five-year partner­ship.

Charles Marville, Photographer of Paris

January 30, 2014  |  In the mid-nineteenth century Baron Haussmann's famous transformation of Paris into the city of wide boulevards and parks that we now know erased a me­dieval Paris of narrow streets and congested neighborhoods. This older Paris was captured by the photographer Charles Marville just be­fore its demolition. Marville also photographed the new Paris as well as doing cloud studies and other experi­ments with the camera. In this extensive exhibition of this contemporary of Nadar, the museum will account for Marville's life and the full range of his work.

Charles Marville, Photographer of Paris • January 29 to May 4

Arts et Métiers (Ancien Modèle) by Charles Marville (1813-1879), 1864. Albumen silver print from glass negative. Metropolitan Museum of Art.
