This comprehensive exhibition features highlights from the Speed’s American Indian collection, along with paintings, drawings and photographs by Louisville artist and ethnographer Frederick Weygold. Although Weygold’s work as an illustrator, photographer and collector of Native American art is highly regarded in Europe, he remains virtually unknown in the U.S. This exhibition offers for the first time a thorough account of this remarkable man and his achievements.
The marriage of visual interest and historical depth is abundant within the works on paper collection at the Cincinnati Art Museum. With some inspiration from their collection and careful curation, you can add to your private collection the works of masters that are beautiful, intellectual, and historically significant.
