I finally saw this show on Saturday.  It includes 80 paintings,
scratchboards, & drawings of landscapes and wildlife from around the world.
Jaques painted the dioramas at the American Museum of Natl History in NYC
and the dioramas at the Bell Museum.  He also illustrated about 40 books.
Many of the books are on display also.  He was one of the first artists to
paint birds and other animals in their habitats.  I learned that there is
also a Jaques museum in Aitkin MN.  He spent a lot of time N of Aitkin,
Duluth, NYC, and later in Mpls/St Paul.   Most of the paintings are of
birds, many waterfowl, but also landscapes.  great compositions and great
renditions of animals.   

 

This is a great opportunity to see one of the best painters of nature. The
exhibit began in June and ends this Sunday Sept 5.  

 

Tuesday - Friday  9 to 5:00

Sat  10 - 5:00
