Amon Carter Museum - Seeing in Detail: Scott and Stuart
Gentling's Birds of Texas
Exhibition on Display: September 14, 2019 - December 1, 2019
When you view Scott and Stuart Gentling's watercolors of Texas birds, you'll
want to get close. The level of detail is extraordinary - hundreds of brushstrokes
for each feather, and hundreds of feathers. Seeing in Detail features 23 of Scott
and Stuart's watercolors from the museum's permanent collection. It's the first
of two consecutive exhibitions at the Carter dedicated to these Fort Worth
artists and their unique approach to painting the natural world.
