Before the arrival of the Spanish in 1532, Peru had seen the rise and fall of numerous cultures and artistic styles, not just those of the Inca Empire, for which it is so well known. Because these civilizations lacked written records, we gain our understanding of their histories and societies through their art and archaeology. Focusing primarily on ceramics from cultures before the time of the Inca, this installation encourages visitors to explore less familiar arts and traditions.

Modern Sculptors in Indiana
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor
Continuing through March 12, 2017

Several modern sculptors of national and international prominence were born in Indiana, worked in the state, or came here to study. This installation features the work of artists Robert Laurent, David Smith, George Rickey, David Hayes, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and (from October onwards) William Wiley, all of whom have Indiana connections. This installation is presented in conjunction with the Indiana State Bicentennial and has been endorsed as an official Bicentennial Legacy Project.

Special Exhibitions

Giambattista and Domenico Tiepolo: Master Drawings from the Anthony J. Moravec Collection
October 1, 2016 to February 5, 2017
Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery, first floor

This exhibition highlights the most important gift of Old Master drawings in the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s seventy-five year history. In 2010, Anthony J. Moravec, a Columbus, Indiana, businessman, donated twenty-four drawings by the eighteenth-century Italian master Giambattista Tiepolo, his son Domenico, and several of their contemporaries. The centerpiece is a group of a dozen drawings from Domenico Tiepolo’s New Testament cycle. These large pen, brush, and ink drawings are not studies for other works, as was more typical of the period but rather unique designs that showcase the artist’s deep understanding of the religious subject matter and his careful observation of the world around him. The exhibition’s guest curator and catalogue author Adelheid M. Gealt–the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Director Emeritus and an expert on Domenico’s drawings–believes that the series (numbering 320 known sheets) represents a feat unparalleled in the history of art.
