Frederick Grant’s The Red Parasol

Strong foundations are essential for the future.  In 1909, the founders of the Art Museum established the Lafayette Art Association, which laid the groundwork for amassing a remarkable Permanent Collection for the next 100 years and beyond.  The works in this exhibition feature numerous ‘foundation’ pieces beginning with the first acquisition, The Cruise of the Elida,  by F. Luis Mora.  Over time works of varying subject matter and medium have been acquired.  However, the caliber of work is the paramount concern.  Magnificent examples of craftsmanship include Henry Ossawa Tanner’s Entrance to Kasbah, Frederick Grant’s The Red Parasol, and Thomas Hart Benton’s Planting, to name but a few.
