October 4–December 21, 2014
Special Exhibitions Gallery, first floor

This is the first exhibition devoted to the many beautiful works Catalan American painter Pierre Daura (1896–1978) created in response to his personal relationships. His courtship and marriage to his wife Louise, daughter's birth, life in St. Cirq-La-Popie, service in the Spanish Civil War, exile to America during WWII, and Louise’s subsequent illness and death all represent events to which Daura responded with deeply personal and moving works on paper, canvas, and wood, on view soon at the IU Art Museum.
