Highlights from the William J. Glackens Collection

The Glackens Art Collection, bequeathed to Nova Southeastern University’s Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale in 1991 by Ira Glackens, son of William J. Glackens, covers the artist’s versatile talent from 1892, when he made a living as an artist/reporter, to 1938, the year of his death, when he was internationally known as America’s Renoir. This encyclopedic collection boasts a wide variety of examples of Glackens’s artistry – from casual crayon sketches to a unique hand-carved wooden panel, from rare etchings to heartwarming family photographs. The William J. Glackens exhibition celebrates the publication of a brand-new scholarly manual for the Glackens Collection. The text, written by noted art historian and curator Elizabeth Thompson Colleary, discusses in depth many of the Glackens works on display here at the Museum of Art.
