The University of Virginia Art Museum will showcase three exhibits at a Fourth Friday reception on Sept. 23 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
They are: “A Jefferson Ideal: Selections from the Dr. and Mrs. Henry C. Landon III Collection of American Fine and Decorative Arts,” “Insistent Absence: The Unacknowledged Influence of Ukiyo-e on Modern Japanese Prints” and “The Power of the North: German, Dutch and Flemish Old Master Prints.”
“A Jefferson Ideal[” marks the first exhibition of the Landons’ nationally recognized collection. It focuses on American paintings and decorative arts from the late 17th through the 19th centuries.
“The Power of the North” exhibit allows viewers to decide if Italian elegance is matched by German, Dutch or Flemish power and precision.
“Insistent Absence” explores the connections between the two historic periods and modes of print production — 17th through 19th century Ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) and modern Japanese woodblock prints.
Fourth Friday receptions are free to students and museum members. Students must bring a driver's license or passport identification to verify they are 21 or older. For all others, there is a $3 admission charge.
