“Landscape Paintings and Forgery”
January 5 - February 5, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 5, 6 - 8pm
Features Original Museum Painting

Stamford, CT Oct. 21, 2016 – Inspired by a landscape painting from the Stamford Museum & Nature Center’s permanent collection, Loft Artists Association members will showcase an exhibition landscape work on view in the East Gallery at 575 Pacific Street from January 5 to February 5.

Midsummer, Montclair, NJ c.1873 is a large oil on canvas landscape that was gifted to the Stamford Museum in 1971 by Harvey L. Rohde of New Canaan, CT. Originally attributed to George Inness (1825 –1894), a prominent American landscape painter, art historian and Innes expert Michael Quick has verified that the actual artist was Alexander Wust, (1837-1876) a Dutch-born landscape painter who painted in a style quite similar to Innes. Forged signatures and dates create faked paintings. Who benefits and who loses in the shady, even criminal world of art forgery? The painting will be on view and Curator Kirsten Brophy will tell the full story at the opening reception January 5 at 6 PM.

This show marks the third collaborative event between LAA and SM&NC. “Landscape Paintings and Forgery” is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4:30 pm. Admission and parking are free. Handicapped access is available by appointment. For directions and more information call 203-247-2027. Sponsored in part by Louis J. Kuriansky Foundation, Laurel House Inc., Bob and Pat Phillips.
