From Munich to Brown County: The Life and Artwork of T.C. Steele
FEBRUARY 2 – JUne 11, 2017
Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (upper level)
Indiana artist Theodore Clement Steele (1847-1926) is perhaps the most widely-celebrated Hoosier Impressionist painter of the early 20th century. In honor of Indiana’s bicentennial celebration, From Munich to Brown County: The Life and Artwork of T.C. Steele highlights paintings and sketches drawn from the DePauw University Permanent Art Collection and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. A master of capturing both landscape and the human figure in oil paint, Steele was instrumental in establishing the Brown County Artist Colony near Nashville, Indiana. Yet, few within the DePauw community are aware of the significant historic and modern ties between Steele and the University.
