When Sheila Hicks (American, born 1934) was traveling in Morocco, she saw an elaborate gold embroidered saddle that reflected light dramatically. It inspired this large textile panel, Honed and Faceted, on display in Gallery 203. This panel is related in concept and application to a series created for King Saud University, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.This color print by Philibert-Louis Debucourt (French, 1755-1832), The Public Promenade, is found in Gallery 315, along with other examples of French 18th-century prints, through December 6, 1999. Created in 1792, the etching, engraving and aquatint includes (in this detail) a portrait of the future king, Louis XVIII, blowing a kiss to an admirer.André Kertész, an American photographer born in Hungary (1894-1985), made this work, Melancholic Tulip, New York in 1939. It's a gelatin silver print, gift of Frederick B. Scheel to The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, on view as part of the "Recent Accessions" exhibition through October 3, 1999 in the Cargill Gallery.
