The Sky’s The Limit: Marvin Cone’s Clouds

May 1 - August 22, 2010

Marvin Cone, Golden Afternoon, 1922, oil on canvas, Gift of Happy Young and John B. Turner II, 83.1.9
Throughout his entire career, Marvin Cone was fascinated by clouds and he demonstrated his awe of and reverence for cloud formations in many paintings and drawings. In some of his works, majestic clouds are so much the subject that those paintings are more correctly called “cloudscapes” than landscapes. This exhibition of thirty works from the 1910s to the 1940s traces the many ways and styles Cone used to capture the ethereal and transitory qualities of clouds, as well as their majesty and power.

This exhibition is sponsored in part by the Momentum Fund of The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation and an anonymous donor.

Nice "teaser" for the exhibit. His clouds are wonderful, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in person!

I have always loved looking at cloud formations. Shall have to make this exhibit! (I like the way I can click to see larger images in a separate window, by the way.)
