Press Event: George de Forest Brush: The Indian Paintings

The first exhibition of George de Forest Brush's remarkable paintings of American Indians will be on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, September 14, 2008 through January 4, 2009. Inspired in part by the recent rediscovery of 'An Aztec Sculptor' (1887), an important work missing for a century, the exhibition and its accompanying catalogue will offer groundbreaking new research on Brush's works—long prized by collectors, yet rarely available for public viewing. 'George de Forest Brush: The Indian Paintings' is organized by the National Gallery of Art in association with the Seattle Art Museum, where it will be on view February 26 through May 24, 2009.
