Side by Side: Oberlin’s Masterworks at the Phillips
Sept. 11, 2010–Jan. 16, 2011
Twenty-five significant works from the rich collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin will be presented with selections from the Phillips’s permanent collection, creating new artistic conversations and provocative juxtapositions. Many of these works have not left the Allen in half a century and include paintings by artists in the modernist tradition—such as Paul Cézanne, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Claude Monet, and Mark Rothko—as well as significant works by Hendrick ter Brugghen, Peter Paul Rubens, and Joseph Mallord William Turner, among others. Organized by The Phillips Collection and the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio.
