Samuel F. B. Morse's (1791-1872) Gallery of the Louvre (1831-33) is one of the most significant and enigmatic works of early 19th-century American art. It is also one of the last works Morse painted before turning his attention to the invention of the telegraph and Morse code.
A signature painting in the collection of the Terra Foundation for American Art, Gallery of the Louvre underwent an extensive conservation treatment in 2010-11 and was the focus of three symposia held at the Yale University Art Gallery (April 2011), the National Gallery of Art (April 2012), and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (April 2013). This collection of essays, carefully drawn from the proceedings of these scholarly sessions, brings together the fresh insights of academics, curators, and conservators, who focus on the painting's visual components and its cultural contexts.
Edited by Peter John Brownlee, associate curator at the Terra Foundation for American Art.
This book accompanied a multi-year tour of the painting to prominent museums across the country. The Huntington was the opening venue for this tour, exhibiting Gallery of the Louvre from January 24, 2015 through May 4, 2015.
