Dürer to Rubens: Northern European Art from The Bass
While The Bass is closed for renovations, a selection of artworks from the permanent collection is on view at the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. Both The Bass and the Lowe are the only two professional art institutions in greater Miami to house extensive collections of European Old Master paintings, sculptures and decorative art objects.
“The Lowe is thrilled to be able to partner with The Bass on such a beautiful and important exhibition,” said Jill Deupi, Beaux Arts director and chief curator at the Lowe. “Not only does this show complement our own remarkable Kress Collection of Italian Renaissance and Baroque works, it also helps to tell the story of the foundation upon which later generations of artists built their own creative identities.” The focus of the exhibition is Northern Europe during the Renaissance and Baroque periods (15th to 17th centuries), with included works that represent a range of media—including oil on canvas, tempera on panel, enamel on porcelain, and textiles—as well as a compelling array of subjects. “The Bass is delighted to share its collection with the Lowe and we thank them for inviting us to their home this year, while ours is under construction,” said Silvia Karman Cubiñá, executive director and chief curator of The Bass.
