Current Exhibit: Louis Bouché, Part II: The Modern Artists Era
The theme of the exhibit showcases some mural sections that once hung in the lobby of Shulton, the former Clifton cosmetic company. These mural sections were painted by Bouché between 1946-1948 and were titled “Womanhood throughout the ages pays scented tribute to Venus, Goddess of Beauty”. The mural’s accurate workmanship includes the cosmetics, hair-dos and costumes of the various periods. In conjunction to the mural sections, the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum, (WAAM) Woodstock, New York is loaning some of their selected paintings from their permanent collection of Louis Bouché. The Art in Embassies Program from Washington, DC is also loaning the 1948 painting of “Spring in Park” by Bouché.
In this part two of Louis Bouché exhibits, Mr. Ted and Jane Boyer of Princeton, New Jersey are loaning art from their private collection of Woodstock artists, which was on display at the Trenton City Museum last Fall of 2013.
The Boyer family has collected art created by Woodstock artists from the earliest days of the Byrdcliff artists’ colony up to the seventh decade of the Twentieth Century. In the early 20thCentury, artists, many of whom were associated with the Art Students League of New York, including Louis Bouché, came together in Woodstock to share their collective creativity and live near the town of Woodstock in the Catskill Mountains.
The exhibit also continues to showcase historic photos of Shulton and artifacts.
