This display of ten, rare large-format photogravures by Alfred Stieglitz showcases the creative process of an artist. These exquisite versions of some of Stieglitz’s most important photographs were in his private collection at the time of his death. They reveal how the artist tested inks and papers in his efforts to best relay the beauty of the world and his vision. The exhibition is drawn from a generous gift of Doris Bry, who worked for many years as the assistant and exclusive art dealer for Georgia O’Keeffe.

Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist is the first retrospective of the American artist’s paintings in two decades. Archibald John Motley Jr. (1891–1981) is one of the most significant yet least known twentieth-century artists, despite the continued broad appeal of his paintings. Many of his most important portraits and cultural scenes remain in private collections and few museums have had the opportunity to acquire his work.

In conjunction with the exhibition Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River opening in October, the Amon Carter Museum has commissioned Chicago-based artist Terry Evans to photograph the Trinity River as it runs through Fort Worth. Evans is one of the nation’s acclaimed landscape photographers, and her works offer Amon Carter visitors an opportunity to think about our local river in the context of Bingham’s nineteenth-century work.

Navigating the West, a dynamic exhibition featuring seventeen iconic river paintings and fifty drawings, reveals for the first time how George Caleb Bingham (1811–1879) created his art and artistic persona at a time when American painting, like the country, was dramatically shifting. Then and now our nation’s waterways—how they are used, controlled, and the lives of the people closest to them—remain a current and important issue.
