Exhibition Website

Nov 6 2016 - Apr 12 2017

This exhibition highlights work from the Meadows' own Indochina Collection of Jean Despujols (1886-1965). As an academically trained French painter, Despujols received rigorous, formal training in the use of color. 

Centenary biology, neuroscience, and psychology students will partner with art, communication, and design students to teach the public about the role of color in both perception and art, while showcasing Despujols' beautiful, bold paintings.
