SUNDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Neuberger Museum, SUNY Purchase


The Neuberger Museum of Art, located at the heart of SUNY Purchase College, is a vital cultural resource of modern, contemporary, and African art for Westchester County, NY, and beyond.  From the mid-century American and African art that form the collection's core to the presentation of contemporary art, the museum continues the commitment of founding patron Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010) by championing the art of our time.

Exhibits on view include:

A Special Look: Louis Michel Eilshemius

The largest body of work by a single artist in the Neuberger Museum of Art’s collection is by Louis Michel Eilshemius, who is represented by more than a hundred paintings, watercolors, and drawings.

This exhibit features a focused group of works created by the artist between 1874 and 1909 that reflect his academic training and interest in the longstanding European tradition of landscape painting.  Like many of his predecessors from the nineteenth century, Eilshemius traveled throughout Europe and made several journeys to distant countries.  His works were created both “en plein air,” and in his studio after images from his sketchbook.

Then and Now: Modern and Contemporary Selections from the Permanent Collection

Included in Then and Now are works by some of our most beloved artists including Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Richard Diebenkorn, Arthur Dove, Helen Frankenthaler, Marsden Hartley, Hans Hofmann, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and David Smith.  Amid these works contemporary art from the collection also are installed, in keeping with the spirit of our founding patron, Roy R. Neuberger, who was committed to supporting the work of living artists, particularly during the formative years of their careers.  As he once observed, “The contemporary world should buy the work of contemporary artists.”
