To Know the Dark: American Artists’ Visions of Night


“Moonlight” by Ralph Blakelock

Yale Art Gallery Exhibition: To Know the Dark: American Artists’ Visions of Night

Information from the Yale Art Gallery:

“This exhibition explores that evocative period from dusk to dawn in the works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century American artists, among them Robert Adams, Ralph Albert Blakelock, Oscar Bluemner, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, and Yvonne Jacquette. Artists’ visions of night—offering intimations of suspense, mystery, romance, fantasy, fear, despair, and hope—are as much psychological explorations of the mind as they are transcriptions of the external world. Accompanied by quotations from literature, including the poem by Wendell Berry that provides the title for this show, the exhibition invites visitors to consider how night has been variously interpreted in images and words.”
