JOHN WILDE

T H E   E A R L Y   W O R K S


November 19 – December 31


John Wilde, a major figure in Wisconsin Art and a leader in the American Surrealism movement called Magic Realism. A painter, printmaker, and one of the great draftsmen of our time, Wilde pulls the viewer into his own personal dream world where the common becomes uncommon. His mastery of silverpoint gives his drawings unusual depth and richness rarely seen in a technique known for its fineness and detail.

This important exhibition focuses on Wilde’s paintings and drawing from the 1940s and 1950s. Many of these work are pivotal works in his career and have never been exhibited before. A catalog will accompany this exhibition with an essay by Robert Cozzolino, the Patrick and Aimee Butler Curator of Paintings at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Dr. Cozzolino will give a talk on John Wilde at the opening on November 19.
