Exhibition of diverse artist’s work gets Stuck in place

November 27, 2013 by  

As of this month, the Frye Art Museum has been hosting the Franz von Stuck exhibit, which runs until February of next year. It is the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, and the 120th anniversary of his American debut, but this is the first major monographic exhibition of his work in the U.S.

The exhibit was organized by the Museum Villa Stuck in Munich and the Frye. It will feature examples of his architectural drawings, photographs and selected canvases from museums and art galleries around the world.

In addition to this showcase, there will be a couple of events taking place this December, including a gallery discussion with historian Rebecca Albiani on December 7 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm and the lecture ‘Franz von Stuck: Lust Performance and the Artist’s Gaze’ on December 8 between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. The lecture will be followed by a tour of the gallery, for which space is limited and guests must register in advance.

A 172-page catalog has been published for this exhibit, providing many example of his work with accompanying essays, priced at $38. Seattle catalog printing companies may have given advice on which format would best suit the piece.

The Franz von Stuck exhibit is on show at the Frye Art Museum until February 2, 2014. Admission to the venue is free and it is open Tuesdays through Sundays. For more information about the exhibit or the accompanying talks, call 206-432-8200 during normal hours.
