Henri Guérard and the Phenomenon of the Artist’s Fan in France, 1875 –1900 

July 31 – October 9, 2016

Organized by the Dixon Gallery and Gardens  

In the late nineteenth century, a group of painters, influenced by Japanese art, began adapting the fan format when creating works on paper. Drawn from the Dixon’s own collection, as well as public and private collections across the United States and Europe, Henri Guérard and the Phenomenon of the Artist’s Fan in France, 1875 – 1900 celebrates that brief yet exciting period when artists embraced the creative possibilities of the hand-fan’s curvilinear form.
