John Trumbull – Male Nude From Behind

With this post I am starting a new category on the blog – Art In Museums. In it I will share art I find on museum websites that is worth sharing.

In a search to find interesting websites related to bridges, I stumbled on the website for the Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas tonight (Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at around 7 p.m.). I began exploring one of it’s collections and I found this striking sketch of a male nude by John Trumbull drawn in circa 1798 that I think is great and would like to share for anyone interested to view it.

I have digitally enhanced the image above for better contrast over the original image. You can see the original image at Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art by clicking here.

Description From The Publisher Candida Stevens Gallery: We are delighted to present Stephen Farthing’s Museums of the World, a collection of 19 paintings produced between 2015-2017, by Royal Academy Exhibitions Committee Chairman Stephen Farthing RA, of the interiors of public and private museums around the world. They were inspired by his work with British museums including the Royal Academy and the Ashmolean and by a life of travelling the world as the husband of an American diplomat. The work combines a probing look at the history of collecting while painted with Farthing’s usual good humour.
