Main Level, Bow Gallery

The Bow and Trees Galleries, which have been freshly painted with new colors, feature thoughtful reinterpretations of KAM’s collection of European and American art from circa 1320 to 1950.

The Bow Gallery reinstallation showcases artwork from North America, Europe, and European colonies. Thematic groupings include art from the domains of the House of Habsburg, recent conservation efforts, and more.

Visitors to the gallery will enjoy learning about the Renaissance Portrait of Diane of France, Daughter of King Henri II, with its remarkable detail and fresh color revealed through recent conservation by Kuniej Berry Associates of Chicago.

Also on view are paintings by Max Beckmann, James P. Butler, Thomas Gainsborough, Emily Groom, Childe Hassam,  Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Camille Pissarro, Théodule Ribot, and a sampling of works from the museum's exceptional collection of decorative arts.

Curator: Maureen Warren, Curator of European and American Art
