Explore the World Through the Eyes of Artists Spanning Five Centuries at This Exhibit

Since 1941, the Norton Museum of Art has served as West Palm Beach’s art venue. Its collection includes over 7,000 works, with a concentration in European, American, and Chinese art as well as in contemporary art and photography. Come uncover the history of art and explore our all-new “Small Worlds” exhibit!

Titled after Wassily Kandinsky's 1922 print series, Small Worlds, this exhibition comprises about 40 European drawings and prints made over the course of five centuries. Roughly chronological in its arrangement, the exhibition begins with soft metal cuts for illustrated bibles dating from the early 15th century, moves to works by Dürer, Rembrandt, Callot, Piranesi, Manet, and Klinger, among others, and ends in the 20th century with works by Chagall, Picasso, Kandinsky, and Klee.

While the exhibition features many well-known artists, it also highlights talented, but lesser-known artists and seldom-seen works from the collection. These include works about which recent research has yielded important and exciting new insights. Small Worlds underlines the frequent role of prints and drawings as microcosms of the experience intended to be seen close up.

Small Worlds will be on display until September 17, 2019. For more information, visit www.norton.org.
