Madonnas of the Prairie: Depictions of Women in the American West
In the mid-nineteenth century artists depicted women as victims, passive observers, or merely passengers in the settlement of the American West. Madonnas of the Prairie will examine these type depictions juxtaposed with images of Western women as protagonists: Using the PPHM permanent collection as the foundation, the exhibition will draw on public and private collections to flesh out the offerings of painters, photographers, and sculptors across the spectrum. Artists represented will include Dorothea Lange, Beulah Schiller Ayars, H. D. Bugbee, W. Herbert Dunton, Ben Carlton Mead, Gerald Cassidy, W. H. D. Koerner, Remington Schuyler, Gina Knee, Herbert Morton Stoops, Margaret Wright Tupper, P. V. E. Ivory, Olin Travis, Jerry Bywaters, and many, many other artists.
This program is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
