Artwork Overload

We’re gearing up for the Decade of Gifts and Discoveries show, opening on January 9th! Artwork is flowing in from buildings scattered across campus, as well as from the Hampden Art Study Center. Today, the gallery team brought over a group of paintings, including two from the Sturm College of Law. The first is a 19th-century Florentine replica of Rafael’s Madonna della Sedia, which boasts a lovely carved and gilded frame. The second is one of the highlights of the DU Art Collection: a charming portrait of a peasant girl by the prolific painter Daniel Ridgway Knight, from around the turn of the century. This particular painting had been in the Law School for at least thirty years, and will be showcased in the exhibition.

Stay tuned for more! We’re looking forward to seeing you here for the opening reception.
