The Portland Museum of Art is hosting “Clarence H. White and His World,” a survey exhibition of the photographic works of American artist, beginning from the early days of his career through his last ones. The exhibition closes on September 16, 2018.
“Clarence H. White and His World,” is the first survey of the artist’s works in over forty years. Clarence H. White (United States, 1871–1925), was a founding member of the Photo-Secession, known for the beautiful scenes of quiet domesticity and outdoor idylls that he captured.
The artist began his career in 1895 in Newark, Ohio, and continued to work until his death in Mexico in 1925. This exhibition, encompassing the artist’s entire career showcases over a hundred of his works. It includes prints, albums, and illustrated books by White as well as paintings, prints, and drawings by artists who influenced or were influenced by White’s works.
“Clarence H. White and His World,” the museum writes, “brings this essential American artist to the attention of new generations of art enthusiasts and reclaim his place in the American art canon. The exhibition provides a fresh understanding of White’s career, as shaped by the aesthetic, social, economic, technological, and political transformations of the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era.”
Showcased alongside White’s works the works of his friends, collaborators, and students, including Gertrude Kasebier, Alfred Stieglitz, and Alvin L. Colburn.
The exhibition is on view through September 16, 2018, at the Portland Museum of Art, 7 Congress Square, Portland, ME 04101, USA.
