“HERBERT HASELTINE: SCULPTOR OF THE MODERN AGE”
On view through May 26, 2013
Cost: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour.
Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife Alice befriended American expatriate sculptor Herbert Chevalier Haseltine (1877–1962) in Europe during World War I and from 1926 to 1933 added five of his works to their modern art collection at Evergreen. The largest presentation of the artist’s work since 1951, this exhibition affords an intimate look at the celebrated artist through the vibrant friendship he maintained with his Baltimore-based kindred spirits over 25 years. Installed in the great Main Library—originally designed to display two of Haseltine’s sculptures—the exhibition brings together works drawn from the museum’s and private collections, correspondence between Haseltine and the Garretts, and the artist’s unpublished memoir. The exhibition is organized by guest curator Chloe Pelletier, a senior in the Johns Hopkins Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.
