From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason
From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason is the first retrospective of American artist Eugene Thomason’s work in more than a generation and a rare opportunity to see the holdings of his art owned by The Johnson Collection, a private collection of southern American art. Thomason is a Charlotte native who, after training in New York at the Art Students League and with urban realist George Luks, returned to his home state in the early 1930s and became known for his colorful, powerfully-painted portraits and landscapes.
Known for relentlessly mocking the fashion system while at the same time profiting from it, Franco Moschino (1950-1994) used fashion as a platform for theatrical presentations filled with humor, irony, and surrealism. Many of the iconic garments that made him a fashion legend will now be on view in the first American retrospective of his work, VIVA MOSCHINO!
