While for most of his career the American artist Arthur Dove made abstract paintings that evoked the natural world, for a brief period in the 1920s he turned to still life, creating sculptural assemblages he called “things.” Rachael DeLue, professor of art and archaeology, explores Dove’s turn toward the world of objects and his experimentation with the still life genre. A reception in the Museum will follow.
