On view at The Dixon Gallery and Gardens January 28, 2018 - April 8, 2018.

Upcoming events:

Sunday, Jan. 28 at 2pm: Opening Lecture: 'Old World Grace, Modern Taste' by Julie Pierotti, Martha R. Robinson Curator 

Sunday, February 4 at 2pm: Talk at Two: 'Eugenia Errázuriz and Parisian Musical Modernism' by Jeremy Orosz, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Music Theory, University of Memphis

The Real Beauty: The Artistic World of Eugenia Errázuriz, organized by The Dixon Gallery and Gardens, is the first American museum exhibition centered on the life of this remarkable figure in the history of modern art and design. Addressing the larger subject of the role of South Americans in turn-of-the-century Europe, the exhibition will feature works of art centered around Eugenia's relatives and friends, especially the Subercaseaux, who shared her passion for the arts. In the early 1800s, Eugenia Huici Arguedas de Errázuriz arrived in Europe with her husband, amateur painter José Tomás Errázuriz. Very quickly, the newlywed Errázurizes began making their rounds across Europe, becoming, along with their relatives Amalia and Ramón Subercaseaux, favorites among the cosmopolitan group of artists in turn-of-the-century Europe.
