Casa Europa’s new exhibit, 300 Years of European Landscapes, will provide a look at the spiritual elements in landscape art over three centuries. This exhibition, designed by independent curator Margaret Failoni for Casa Europa, will have a cocktail opening on Thursday, January 10, and will remain open to the public until the end of February.

Spirituality is present in landscape art’s beginnings in European art. Not surprisingly, spirituality in landscapes has strong roots in Romanticism. The late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries saw the rise in popularity of Romanticism in the works of the Frenchmen Gustave Courbet and Camille Corot, and of the great German artist, Casper David Fredericks, followed by Impressionists Claude Monet, Camille Pisarro, and later Vincent Van Gogh. Even later came the Hudson School artists, Thomas Cole, and Albert Beerstadt.

The exhibit is fortunate to have loans from the private collections of an international group of San Miguel de Allende residents who have opened their collections for the historical part of this show. The exhibit will also feature contributions from a select group of international contemporary artists who have created European landscape art for the twenty-first century. There will also be works for sale.

A generous percentage of the monies earned will be donated to Casa Europa.

The artists participating in the twenty-first century part of the exhibition are Margherita Branciforte, Mario Cabrera, Santiago Corral, Pedro Friedeberg, Maruja González, Joan Hall, Ian Johnson, Paul Luís, Ron Mallory, Keith Miller, Alejandro Rivera Leal, Jennifer Posner, Eduardo Silva, Linda Soberman, and Edgar Soberon.

300 Years of European Landscapes could not have been organized without the cooperation of the lenders of the artwork, of Hotel Dos Casas owner Alberto Laposse, and of the hotel’s Aperi gourmet restaurant chef Olivier Deboise. Deboise is also generously supplying the champagne.
