The Open Window

Wednesday, May 18, 2022

In "De Pictura" (On Painting, 1435), Italian Renaissance theorist Leon Battista Alberti instructed painters to consider the frame of the painting as an open window. This treatise served as a defining concept for theories of painting, architecture, and moving pictures going forward. The works in this exhibition either follow or challenge the metaphor of Alberti’s window, but also provide an intellectual space in which we might consider how our own views are framed and with what perspective. This exhibition is pulled from the Museum's permanent collection.
