Painting the Italian Landscape:

Views from the Uffizi

The fascinating evolution of landscape from backdrop to protagonist can be seen in Painting the Italian Landscape: Views from the Uffizi. Drawn from the world-famous collections of the Uffizi Gallery of Florence, Italy, this selection features five centuries of Italian landscape paintings and includes masterpieces by such famous artists as Sandro Botticelli, Guercino, Nicolas Poussin, Claude Lorraine, and Canaletto. The Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy is one of the most famous and beloved museums in the

Featuring a selection of Italian landscape masterpieces by Botticelli, Guercino, Nicolas Poussin, Claude Lorraine, and Canaletto from the world-famous Uffizi collection, the exhibition illustrates the evolution of Italian landscape painting from a backdrop in the Renaissance through the 18th century, when the landscape itself became the centerpiece in many paintings.

The Object Project poses a tantalizing question: how would fifteen different painters approach the same five objects? The artists themselves selected the final five by ballot: a clear glass of water, a moth, a ball of string, a bone and a hand mirror. These everyday objects served as a starting point from which each artist would create two paintings. Janet Monafo, Me & the Moth, 2006, pastel on paper, 33 x 29 inches

Eugene Brady Adkins was a life-long resident of Tulsa from one of the area’s original pioneer families. His grandfather, W. Tate Brady, was a developer, entrepreneur, and civic leader who built the city’s original first-class accommodations, the Brady Hotel, in 1900. Throughout Eugene’s life, he was passionate about art. He amassed an extraordinary collection of paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculpture, pottery, weavings, baskets and jewelry from the Southwest and beyond. It was Mr. Adkins wish that the collection be seen and enjoyed by the public. While the Adkins Collection and Study Center is under construction the items on display will change over the coming months. The Collection of over 3,500 objects will be shared by Philbrook and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma.

May 11 – November 2, 2008,

In the mid-1920s, Waite Phillips commissioned Edward Buehler Delk to design his two residences, Villa Philbrook in Tulsa and Villa Philmont on his ranch near Cimarron, New Mexico. This exhibition presents an overview of Delk’s life and career with special focus on his projects in Bartlesville and Tulsa.

An Oklahoma oil man, banker, investor, and philanthropist, Waite Phillips had a profound impact upon the growth and development of Tulsa. His legacy extends far beyond The Philbrook Museum of Art. His generosity and forethought contributed greatly to making Tulsa the “livable” city that it is today. Photograph by Alvin Krupnick, Waite Phillips Collection, ©The Philbrook Museum of Art.

Re-Installation of the Permanent Galleries Through their etchings, lectures and writings about etching and related topics, Seymour Haden and James Whistler played an important role in the etching revival movement in England. Haden introduced the etching process to his wife’s half-brother Whistler, and subsequently, their efforts would influence Joseph Pennell. Pennell in turn, through his own prints and writings, helped to spearhead the print revival movement in America.

For the first time in several years, the majority of the Villa Philbrook galleries will be systematically re-installed. Phase one includes many of the Main Level Galleries, including the European Gallery, the Wedgwood Gallery, the English Painting Gallery, and the Library/Founders Room. The main level reinstallations will feature fresh interpretations focusing on paintings, sculptures, and works on paper new to Philbrook, as well as many Philbrook favorites. Look for a complete re-installation of the upper level galleries and a partial reinstallation of the lower level galleries throughout the summer and fall of 2008. The end result will be a new look for an old classic.

Have you always wanted to learn more about art? Become a Philbrook Docent The docent program at Philbrook is a great way to learn, meet new people and share the Museum with visitors of all ages. No experience is necessary! Philbrook docents are trained volunteers who serve as tour guides armed with in-depth knowledge about the museum’s collections and exhibits – they are the Museum’s ambassadors to the public. There is something for everyone: • Serve as a guide for groups of Museum visitors, both children and adults. • Assist the Museum’s staff in preparing information on works of art. • Give presentations at schools and to community organizations. • Conduct experiential art activities with Museum visitors.

The next docent intern training classes will begin in September, 2008 through May, 2009, on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The classes are three hours a week for 27 sessions. Docent Interns are instructed in the study of art history, learning theory, tour themes and techniques, the elements of art, and the Philbrook Museum of Art’s collection. Docents are required to be members of the Philbrook Museum of Art and need to fulfill touring and continuing education obligations. A docent typically must be at least 18 years of age. Unique skills, such as foreign language, are valued but not a requirement. Enthusiasm, a desire to learn, and commitment are the most valuable characteristics of a docent. If you think this exciting opportunity is right for you, please contact the Education Coordinator at 918-748-5309, or email rtyner@philbrook.org.

The Secret Garden Did you know in May the gardeners will plant 6,000 annuals and perennials for the summer display?

Spring has Sprung. Don’t miss Philbrook in April. You will see a showcase of double peony tulips in shades of lavender and yellow, bright yellow hyacinths and pink cupped daffodils, along with the naturalized daffodils on the hillsides and the flowering trees. It’s a wonderful time to take colorful spring photographs with your family. Visit the Philbrook’s web site homepage, www.philbook.org, for daily updates of the blooms’ progression so you are sure to not miss out on this truly beautiful time of year at Philbrook.

Now Open The December 2007 ice storm left a tremendous amount of tree damage in the gardens that required expert care. Philbrook thanks Wright Tree Care for their efforts in pruning and caring for the damaged trees in the gardens. The tree clean up is complete and all of the formal gardens are open to the public.

April through June

Planning for the Secret Garden begins in December. The Philbrook gardeners met with Chef Mark Villio of laVilla Restaurant and together they planned the herbs and vegetables that will be needed for the spring and summer menus in the restaurant. The gardeners placed orders for seeds and began the task of creating a seeding calendar and germination record. Once the seeds arrive, the calendar is consulted and the first seeds are sown. This year’s sowing began with rosemary, heliotrope, and eucalyptus in late January. It then carried on with oregano, cilantro and spinach. The last seed sowing is in early May. The growing plants are kept in the greenhouse until it’s warm enough in April to transplant them outside. Try to find the secret garden next time you’re here.
