ARTFIXdaily will be closed the week of July 27. E-newsletter service will resume July 5.

A major highlight this fall season is The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art's revealing of The Stebbins Collection gift, announced earlier this year, in the exhibition The Stebbins Collection: A Gift for the Morse Museum, opening on November 9 in Winter Park, Florida. Drawing exclusively from the works donated by American art pioneer Theodore E. Stebbins Jr. and Susan Cragg Stebbins, this first-time showing of this exquisite collection will be curated by Curator of American Painting Dr. Regina Palm. Dr. Palm will also write the accompanying catalogue. There will be both programs related to the exhibition and seasonal programming.

The Stebbins Collection: A Gift for the Morse Museum introduces an exquisite collection of seventy works of art by fifty-three artists. The Stebbins Collection includes American masters from Albert Bierstadt (1830–1902) and Thomas Moran (1837–1926) to Fidelia Bridges (1834–1923) and Thomas Eakins (1844–1916). Assembled over a period of sixty years, the Stebbins Collection features artists of both great renown as well as some who are lesser known. Each work represents the artists at the height of their abilities. Still lifes, exemplified through the paintings of Martin Johnson Heade (1819–1904) and George Cochran Lambdin (1830–96), and landscapes, by George Inness (1825–94) and Worthington Whittredge (1820–1910), strengthen the Morse’s collection of American Art. Other works such as watercolors by Henry Roderick Newman (1843–1917) and Ellen Robbins (1828–1905) provide important period context. The Stebbins Collection adds to the Museum’s collection generally and compliments finely the Morse’s unparalleled collection of work by Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933).

An accompanying catalogue The Stebbins Collection: A Gift for the Morse Museum will be published in October and available in the Morse Museum Shop. For more information about the Morse, please visit
