This weekend the Gallery offers windows on an ancient city that has captured the imagination of the world since its ruins were discovered in 1748. We also offer glimpses of our own fair city from the comfort of an air-conditioned environment, a true pleasure on these steamy August days. The exhibition Pompeii: Photographs and Fragments closes Sunday, August 19. It's a small yet powerful assembly of work by contemporary artists William Wylie and An-My Lê, alongside 19th century photographs of the site, an 18th century print depiction by Piranesi, and ancient art objects from the period and region. The museum is open from 11–5 Saturday and Sunday. Free admission. #summerinthecity #freeadmission #pompeiiphotographsandfragments #pompeii #yaleartmuseums @yale #dogdaysofsummer #august2018 @infonewhaven @theshopsatyale @artsideasct @artspacenh @newhavenarts @newhavenindy @newhavenregister @ctarttrail @visit_connecticut #pompeiiarchive #williamwylie #anmylê #ancientart #ancientrome #ancientcoins #ancientglass #giorgiosommer #robertrive #piranesi #closingweekend @photographmag @bostonglobe @nhfpl @icp #herculaneum #newhavenct
We are delighted to welcome Sydney Skelton Simon (back) to the Gallery as our new Bradley Assistant Curator of Academic Affairs. Sydney is a @Yale alumnus who was a Gallery Guide as an undergraduate and also part of the curatorial team for two student-curated exhibitions at the Gallery—Responding to Kahn: A Sculptural Conversation (2006–7) and What Is a Line? Drawings from the Collection (2007). Sydney went on to earn a PhD at @stanford specializing in post-World War II American art and design, and has held previous positions at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and at Stanford University's Anderson Collection and Cantor Arts Center. In her role at the Gallery, Sydney is responsible for promoting, managing, and implementing the museum's university-level outreach and teaching programs. The Gallery welcomes students and faculty from all colleges and universities (not just Yale). Contact Sydney if you have questions about opportunities for teaching and learning with the collection. Visit the Education page on our website for more details and contact info for curatorial staff. artgallery.yale.edu In this photo, Sydney is in the modern and contemporary art and design galleries on the museum's third floor, standing in front of Erwin Hauer's sculpture Intercircles (designed 1957, cast ca. 1968). It's made of sand-cast aluminum with a white Teflon finish, and you can see this beautiful object today. The museum is open from 10–5. @anderson.collection.stanford @ngadc @cantorarts @yaleschoolofart @yaledailynews @yalearchitecture @yalesom @yalelawschool @beineckelibrary @yaleschoolofdrama @yaleschoolofmed @yalenursing @yalefes @yalegsas @yalebritishart @academicmuseums #arthistory #americanart #artanddesign #staffnews #bradleycurator #sydneyskeltonsimon #louiskahn #yaleartgalleryguides #yaleartmuseums #erwinhauer #americandesign #contemporaryart #onview #freeadmission @yalealumni @yalealumnimag @ccl_curators

When the going got tough...an artist 👩‍🎨 without an art studio, started drawing at work in the factory 👷🏻‍♂️on a makeshift drawing board...whipping out drawings in gaps between doors popping out of the machine to assemble. I quess you could say I was the #PaulBunyan of the #doorplant . This drawing won a national award in a Juried Show - There were 3 top honors 🏆of equal prestige - this received one of them. The pen rolls thanks to the invention of the ball point pen. If any ✍🏼pen company out there believes in their product, I could give it the ultimate test, give fee to the #homeless .

In the contemporary art galleries on the museum's third floor, Rachel Harrison's mixed media sculpture The Spoon Bender takes center stage, on a red "carpet" no less. This 2011 work is made from wood, polystyrene, cement, acrylic, felt, canvas, steel chair, plastic doll, and eyeglasses. On display behind Harrison's sculpture are (left to right) works by Alex Katz, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and David Wojnarowicz. Come see what's #newonview in these galleries and throughout the museum this weekend. Open 11–5 Saturday and Sunday. #freeadmission #contemporaryart #rachelharrison #contemporarysculpture #mixedmedia #redcarpet #davidwojnarowicz #andywarhol #gerhardrichter #alexkatz #jeanmichelbasquiat #dayatthemuseum #summer2018 #summerinnewhaven @yale #yaleartmuseums #alwayssomethingnew #freefamilyfun #bringyourfriends @visitnewhaven @theshopsatyale @visitnew_england #warholelectricchair #diagramoftheankle #thespoonbender

The paintings are gifts of George Stewart, B.A. 1915, LL.B. 1917, Ph.D. 1921, (Hon.) DD. 1939, and Louis M. Rabinowitz, respectively. See these and other new works on view in the Dutch and Flemish galleries on the second floor. Weekend hours are Friday 10–5; Saturday and Sunday 11–5.

Today at the Gallery: a family enjoys the Art of the Ancient Americas gallery, where visitors can see a fascinating array of objects including the Aztec sculpture which the young artist is drawing in this image. Called "Relief of the Five Ages," it is made of volcanic stone and dates to between 1486 and 1519. This sculpture is on loan from the @yalepeabodymuseum. The Gallery's collection of art from the ancient Americas explores the richness of art from ancient Mesoamerica to the Central Andes, and spans more than 2,500 years from the Olmec culture to the Contact-era Aztec and Inca empires. Draw your own inspiration from the museum's encyclopedic collection with a visit this summer. The Gallery has free admission and is open six days a week, Tuesday–Sunday. All are welcome. #ancientamericas #ancientart #aztec #aztecart @yale @yaleschoolofart #yaleartmuseums #mesoamerica #inca #olmec #reliefsculpture #newonview #maya #andes #freefamilyfun #summer2018 #summerinnewhaven @theshopsatyale @infonewhaven @visit_connecticut @visitnewhaven @nhfpl #sculpture #ancienttextiles #jewelry #thefamilythatdrawstogether #ancientritual #incagold

A wonderful view into the history of a famous painting -- and an excellent reminder that our histories are constructed in many complex ways #Repost @yaleartgallery ・・・ [John] Trumbull was an aide-de-camp for General George Washington during the Revolutionary War and subsequently became the new nation's first history painter. In this iconic image the artist represents the moment when the committee appointed to draw up the document submitted Jefferson's draft for the consideration of the Continental Congress. Conscious of creating an image for succeeding generations, Trumbull made the whole committee—John Adams, Roger Sherman, Robert Livingston, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin—present the document to John Hancock, rather than Jefferson alone, which would have been historically accurate. He consulted Adams and Jefferson about who should actually be in the scene. They urged that all delegates be included, even those who were not present or those who had opposed the Declaration and did not sign. The goal was to preserve the exact likeness of those extraordinary individuals—aristocrats, doctors, lawyers, farmers, shopkeepers—who had put their lives and fortunes on the line. Trumbull worked on "The Declaration" for more than three decades, hoping to include all 56 figures, but he was unable to obtain all the likenesses. Of the 48 portraits in the painting, 36 were taken from life; others were copied from an existing portrait or taken of a son as a substitute. John Trumbull, The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 (detail), 1786–1820. Oil on canvas.

It was a team effort at @YaleWestCampus as Gallery conservators and conservators in training rolled out Edwin Austen Abbey's 12-foot diameter study for The Hours. The painting depicts the night sky in a classical tradition, illustrating the constellations of the zodiac as well as personifying the twenty-four hours of the day. The cartoon was a preparatory work for a mural on the ceiling of the House of Representatives Chamber at the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg, where it has adorned the chamber for more than a century. . Abbey (American, 1852–1911) was part of a cadre of artists including John Singer Sargent, John LaFarge, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and others, who were at the forefront of what was (and is) widely considered to be a renaissance in American art during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Gallery curators Mark Mitchell and Lisa Hodermarsky are planning an exhibition celebrating the extraordinary art of this period, scheduled to open in 2020, giving our stellar conservation team plenty of time to ready this gorgeous painting for display. . Clockwise in this photograph from lower left corner are: Sarah Schlick, conservation intern; Ian McClure, chief conservator; Cindy Schwarz, associate conservator of paintings; Julianna Ly, conservation intern; Kelsey Wingel, postgraduate fellow in conservation; and Theresa Fairbanks-Harris, senior paper conservator. . #Yale (Photos: @YaleArtGallery ) #yaleartmuseums #thehours #celestial #zodiac #allegory #rotunda #mural #pennsylvania #harrisburg #americanart #americanrenaissancepainting #edwinaustinabbey #johnsingersargent #johnlafarge #augustussaintgaudens #yaleipch #artconservation #conservation #technicalarthistory #conservationstudio #inthestudio #conservatorsatwork #museumwork #museumprofessionals

Photographer Michelle Chappel captured this great candid of Gallery Director Jock Reynolds at a reunion in April for former Gallery employees including student workers, museum guides, and staff members. The past year has been one of looking both forward and back for all of us here at the Gallery. Jock's twenty-year tenure as the Henry J. Heinz II Director concludes next week, with incoming director Stephanie Wiles taking the lead on July 1. In his two decades as director, Jock has worked tirelessly to foster a welcoming spirit at the Gallery, encouraging each visitor to "look, learn, and linger" in "this venerable teaching museum." Perhaps Jock's most visible and historic accomplishment as director is the successful completion of the 14-year renovation and expansion of the Gallery, which united its three architecturally distinct buildings and added to its footprint roughly 30,000 square feet of exhibition space, multiple object study classrooms, and a rooftop sculpture terrace. A staunch supporter of the Gallery's long-standing free admission policy, Jock has, time and again, raised the funds necessary for our world-class collection to remain free and open to the public. The Gallery's free membership program, robust array of public programs, and educational offerings have contributed to a doubling of our audience since the expanded museum reopened in 2012. The collection now numbers over 250,000 objects across 11 curatorial departments and has become truly encyclopedic in scope. Jock's magnanimous spirit and creative energy are the true hallmark of his legacy. We will continue to reap the rewards of his leadership and vision for decades to come. Please join us Friday, June 22, 2:30–4:30 pm, for a community celebration honoring Jock on the occasion of his retirement. #freeandopentothepublic @yale #yaleartmuseums #endofanera #lookingforward #lookingback @museumdirectors @newhavenarts @newhavenregister @infonewhaven @yalebritishart @yaleschoolofart @yalearchitecture @yaleschoolofdrama @nytimes @yaledailynews @enneadarchitects @artspacenh @artnewenglandmagazine @yalealumnimag @yalewestcampus @yalelibrary @yalepeabodymuseum @beineckelibrary

Picture yourself at the Furniture Study's downtown location for the very last time this Friday at 12:30 pm. Patricia E. Kane, the Friends of American Arts Curator of American Decorative Arts, offers the final public tour of this hidden treasure before it closes to prepare for the yearlong move to the Collection Studies Center at @yalewestcampus. The #furniturestudy is a working library of more than 1,100 examples of #furniture and wooden objects ranging in date from the 17th to the 21st century. The collection is particularly strong in colonial and Federal furniture, mostly from the Mabel Brady Garvan Collection. The new American Furniture Study Center, generously funded by Leslie P. and George H. Hume, B.A. 1969, will be more spacious, will have movable pallets for heavier items, and will incorporate didactic displays of furniture-making techniques and historic woodworking tools. To join the tour on Friday, June 8, please meet at the Information Desk in the Gallery lobby at 12:30. Free. #pictureyourself #mirrors #americandecorativearts #americanfurniture #woodworking #colonialfurniture #rhodeislandfurniture #federalperiod #closingsoon #hiatus #americanart #americanhistory #oldhome #newhome #americanfurniturestudycenter #yaleartmuseums @yale @yaledailynews #yalefurniturestudy #hiddengem #yalecollectionstudiescenter @johnstuartgordon #mabelbradygarvan #federalfurniture #newengland @visit_connecticut @infonewhaven @visitnew_england #earlyamerican #moderndesign #americaneagle #reflections Top left: John Stuart Gordon, the Benjamin Attmore Hewitt Associate Curator of American Decorative Arts, leads a recent tour of the Furniture Study.

Congratulations to our own Pamela Franks, who has been appointed the next Class of 1956 Director of the @williamscollege Museum of Art. Franks is currently the Gallery's Senior Deputy Director and the Seymour H. Knox, Jr., Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. She has been a beloved colleague, leader, curator, and scholar here at @yale for more than 14 years and will be sorely missed. We extend our heartfelt good wishes to her as she begins this next phase of her museum career in September. @wcmaart colleagues, you are a lucky team indeed, and we look forward to possible #universityartmuseum collaborations in the future. @museumdirectors @newhavenarts @artsideasct @artspacenh @artnewenglandmagazine @artscopemagazine @artnewsmag @art_net_news @mellonfdn @yalelibrary @yalebritishart #yaleartmuseums @yaleschoolofart @yalearchitecture #pamelafranks #sollewitt @massmoca @benningtonmuseum @clarkart #lewittwalldrawings @universityoftexasaustin @nashersculpturecenter
Congratulations, @yale #classof2018 ! The museum is open today from 10–5, in honor of #commencementday . Final preparations are being made in the #wurtelesculpturegarden behind our #louiskahn building for the @yalearchitecture ceremony at noon. Visit the Asian art galleries on the second floor and watch the festivities... or find a quiet corner in one of the museum's three buildings for some reflection on this absolutely gorgeous—and for #yale2018 , momentous—day! #freeandopentothepublic #graduation #capandgown #architecture #asianart #ceramics #tonysmith #sculpture #sculpturegarden #artoutside #insideoutside #throughtheglass #windows #modernarchitecture #spring2018 #jonathanedwardscollege #yaleartmuseums #artandnature #chairs #springsun #georgerickey #elmtree #elmcity #commencement
Time to make a trip to New Haven. • #Repost @yaleartgallery : Joel Shapiro, “Really Blue (after all),” 2016 © 2018 Joel Shapiro/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York #yaleartmuseums @yale #joelshapiro #contemporarysculpture #blue #reallyblue #artandarchitecture @yaleschoolofart #onview #sculpture artsy #artilike #artist #creative
This is Joel Shapiro's "Really Blue (after all)," a 2016 sculpture made of painted wood and now on view in the exhibition Joel Shapiro: Plaster, Paper, Wood, and Wire on the fourth floor of the Louis Kahn building. The way the sculpture's shapes and angles interact with #louiskahn 's #tetrahedral ceiling is pretty spectacular. See it for yourself this weekend. The museum is open from 11 am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free, and free highlights tours are offered both days at 1:30 and 2:30 pm. © 2018 Joel Shapiro/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York #yaleartmuseums @yale #joelshapiro #contemporarysculpture #blue #reallyblue #artandarchitecture @yaleschoolofart @yalearchitecture @infonewhaven @visit_connecticut @visitnew_england @visitnewhaven #freeandopentothepublic #onview #artforall #woodandcasein

Spotted earlier today—as sure a sign of spring in New Haven as the proverbial robin—the return of the bistro tables along Chapel Street outside the Gallery... These tables transform the block into an outdoor café each spring and summer. They're free to use by whoever desires a seat, and are a great place to lunch with friends, people watch, or take an outdoor break. Tuesday through Sunday we invite you to venture inside the museum and have a look around at the 4,000 works of art on view. Admission is free at the Gallery, and at our sister museum right across the street, the Yale Center for British Art. Next time you're downtown grab a bite at @clairescornercopia , @atticuscafe , @book_trader_cafe , @willoughbyscoffee_nhv , @thejuicebox_official , or another fabulous local spot and enjoy it in the open air.

Stephanie Wiles, currently the Richard J. Schwartz Director of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, will serve as the next Henry J. Heinz II Director of the Yale University Art Gallery. Her appointment, announced by Yale President Peter Salovey yesterday, begins July 1, when Jock Reynolds steps down after a transformative 20-year tenure. Wiles comes to @yale with more than two decades of experience leading college and university art museums, first at @wesleyan_u , then at @oberlincollege 's @allenartmuseum , and most recently, at @cornelluniversity 's @hfjmuseum. Wiles began her career at the @themorganlibrary in New York City. Wiles holds a PhD from @thegraduatecenter of the City University of New York. Her dissertation surveys the careers of British-born artists Thomas Charles Farrer, a Ruskin admirer and leader of the American Pre-Raphaelites, and his brother Henry Farrer. Learn more about Wiles at news.yale.edu and join us in welcoming her to New Haven this summer!

This is a detail of a 17th-century French painting called Allegory of Virtuous Love (Amor di virtú). It's on view today in the European art galleries, on loan from Samantha and John-Luke Montias. Even better, it is painted by two artists: Valentin de Boulogne (1594–1632) and Jean Ducamp (1600–1650), but what's in a name? Bring your Valentine (or Valentin) to the Gallery today!

The kindergarten class from @edgewoodschool in New Haven was especially good at adopting #museumposes while walking through the Gallery on a recent visit. Our #wurtelegalleryteachers , who lead school groups in close-looking sessions, always begin by welcoming young visitors in the lobby and modeling museum etiquette before heading off to explore the galleries. These students were quick learners and had a great time. Thank you for visiting! Paintings on view left to right: Joan Mitchell's Lac Achigan (1973). Willem de Kooning's Untitled XIII (1975).

Best of luck to #teamusa at the #peongchang2018 #winterolympics ! This ancient Roman sculpture is on view at the Gallery and thought to depict a victorious Olympian. See it this weekend! The Gallery is open from 11:00–5:00 on Saturday and Sunday. Highlights tours are offered at 1:30 and 2:30 both days. Free admission. Free tours. No registration required. Curator's note: This portrait head represents a young man with a full, fleshy face, square chin, slightly parted lips, and wide-set eyes. The irises are indicated by incision and the pupils drilled—a sculptural convention which begins in the second century A.D. The thick, curly hair was worked extensively with the running drill, creating deep areas of shadow, in a fashion suggestive of a date between 140 and 160 A.D. by comparison with imperial portraits. The head is crowned with an elaborate wreath of bound foliage, probably olive sprigs. Such wreaths were associated in particular with #victory at the #Olympic games, and the palm fronds carved on the bust support reinforce this theme. Therefore it has been suggested that this portrait represents a #victorious Olympic #athlete . #romansculpture #ancientrome #olympicgames #olympia #olivewreath #victor #palmfronds #portraitbust #onview #ancientart #winterolympics2018 #gousa #sport #freeandopentothepublic @yale #yaleartmuseums

In her review of #Lumia : Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light for @artforum , Rebekah Rutkoff writes: "Indeed, it's impossible to walk away from this revelatory exhibition—which was curated by Keely Orgeman and is the first retrospective of the artist's work since 1971—without feeling as if the tectonic plates that compose the stories of twentieth-century art have shifted." The exhibition closes this Sunday, July 23. It opens in Washington, DC, at the @americanartmuseum on October 6. See it before it leaves New Haven! The Gallery is open 10–5 Friday; 11–5 Saturday and Sunday. Free. Image: Curator @keelyorg with Wilfred's Unit #86 , from the Clavilux Junior (First Home Clavilux Model) series, 1930.

#onview : John Trumbull, General George Washington at Trenton, 1792. Oil on canvas. Gift of the Society of the Cincinnati in Connecticut. In 1792, the city of Charleston, South Carolina commissioned from John Trumbull a portrait of George Washington for its city hall to commemorate the president's visit in May 1971. The commission had personal significance for Trumbull, for he had served as Washington's second aide-de-camp during the Revolution. Trumbull chose to convey the critical moment of Washington's leadership during the Revolutionary War when his night maneuvers at Trenton, New Jersey, led to a decisive victory at Princeton the following day, a major turning point of the war. Trumbull considered this portrait the "best of those which I painted." In Trumbull's blend of history painting and portrait, the commander in chief epitomizes heroism and nobility, yet Charleston refused to accept it on the grounds that they preferred a more amiable and peaceful image. Trumbull produced another likeness of Washington, this time with the city in the background, which Charleston accepted. See this painting and other depictions of early #americanhistory today. The Gallery is open from 11–5 on Sunday. There is a highlights tour at 1:30 pm. Admission and programs are free. #happyfourth #happyfourthofjuly #independenceday #fourthofjuly2017 #fourthofjulyweekend #georgewashington #generalgeorgewashington #revolutionarywar #americanart #johntrumbull #battleoftrenton #battleofprinceton #potus1 #uspresident #portrait #ifatfirstyoudontsucceed #freeandopentothepublic #yaleartmuseums @yale @visitnewhaven @visitnew_england @theshopsatyale #charlestonsc

Supplies provided. #sidewalkstudio #josefalbers #colortheory #screenprinting #totebags #studioprogram #artoutside #makeyourown #freeandopentothepublic #artforall @yale #yaleartmuseums #summer2017 #summerfun #familyfriendly Image shows a previous #sidewalkstudio program.
View of the 1953 Louis Kahn building from the tulip beds in the Wurtele Sculpture Garden. On a beautiful day like today, don't discount a trip to the museum. The sculpture garden—accessible from the Gallery lobby—is an idyllic spot for enjoying art and nature. Bring a book or a sketch pad and grab a bench under an elm tree to sit for a while. Venture to the fourth floor of the museum to see the #Lumia and #anniandjosefalbers exhibitions, and take a walk out onto the sculpture terrace. You'll see some great city views, Henry Moore's Draped Seated Woman, and Aristede Maillol's L'Aire and Printemps. The Gallery is open until 5:00 pm and again tomorrow (Sunday) from 11–5. Admission is free. #freeandopentothepublic #spring #tulips #louiskahn #modernarchitecture #wurtelesculpturegarden #sculpturegarden #outdoorsculpture #sculptureterrace #henrymoore #aristedemaillol #elmtree #elmcity #newhavenspring #spring2017 @theshopsatyale @infonewhaven @yale #yaleartmuseums #smallgreatobjects #thomaswilfred
This Thursday is the tenth annual Gallery+Drama, a one-night event in which @yaleschoolofdrama students take over the museum, co opting artworks for dramatic effect, engaging the architecture, layering new stories onto art historical interpretations, and more, through visual and audio projections, live performances, alternative audio guides, and the unexpected. . . Join us to experience the museum in an intriguingly new and ephemeral way as we welcome and celebrate the talents of our #yaleschoolofdrama neighbors! Refreshments in the lobby; installations in stairwells and specific galleries; entertainment and engagement infused throughout the program; and remarkable art everywhere you look... Oh, and bring your headphones along. We will have extras on hand but you may prefer having your own... #freeandopentothepublic #allarewelcome #familyfriendly #freefamilyfun #galleryplus #galleryplusdrama #drama #installationart #projection #performances #liveatthemuseum #onenightonly #10thanniversary @yale #yalearts #creativeyale #yaleartmuseums #actorsandartists #upstage #restage #reinterpretation #louiskahn #museumarchitecture #theater #museumtakeover #artanddrama #projectionart @theshopsatyale @infonewhaven @visitnewhaven @newhavenarts @artspacenh @artsideasct
Thomas Wilfred's #lumia works quickly captured the public imagination. In 1930, Scientific American magazine prophesied that the #Clavilux , Wilfred's first organ-like instrument, would soon be "superseding the fire-place," claiming a home in living rooms worldwide. Wilfred gave Clavilux recitals in #newyorkcity and across the country. The poster on view at left dates from around 1926 and entices the public with promises of #cadenzasofcolor , #symphoniesofsilence , and #unexploredsensation , and describes #Wilfred as an #artpioneer whose avant-garde work is "an achievement that will rank among man's greatest." Let Wilfred's Clavilux capture your imagination today! The Gallery is open until 5:00 pm on Sunday. At right: Unit #86 , from the Clavilux Junior (First Home Clavilux Model) series, 1930. Metal, glass, electrical and lighting elements, and an illustration-board screen in a wood cabinet (top doors open). Carol and Eugene Epstein Collection To operate this home model, one of sixteen from the Clavilux Junior series, the viewer selects one of a half-dozen or more hand-painted color records, each representing a distinct composition. The selected record determines the palette of projected images, often alternating between warm and cool tones. The shape of the forms in the composition is the product of light rays emanating from a bulb inside the mechanism directly below the upper cabinet, then traveling through a cone lined with reflective material, and finally moving between the screen (a piece of inwardly curved illustration board) and the glass pane that protects the front of the cabinet. As the reflected light passes over this concave surface, it is molded into a #flamelike #parabola . Learn more about the mechanics of lumia by purchasing an exhibition catalogue in the lobby bookstore.
