The work of Pierre Daura (1896-1976) evoked for many critics—Catalan, American, and French—the spirit of the place from which he came, Catalonia, as well as the places he lived: Paris, St. Cirq Lapopie, and Virginia. Daura, an artist born on the island of Minorca, was a member of significant modern art movements in the early twentieth century, from the "Agrupació d'Artistes Catalans" to "Cercle et Carré." Exploring the forms, colors, and critical reception of Pierre Daura's paintings and drawings from about 1910 to the late 1930s, this exhibition provided a glimpse into a selection of Daura's work that forms part of the Krannert Art Museum's permanent collection. This was part of KAM's Featured Works Series (XIII).
