OLD MASTER PAINTINGS

Two Bouguereau Paintings at the Frye Museum

William Adolphe Bouguereau's paintings the Shepherdess (Gardeuse de moutons), 1881 Oil on canvas and the Child at Bath (Petite fille assise au bord de l'eau), 1886 oil on canvas are on exhibit at the Fry Museum in Seattle from November 3 through April 6th, 2008

In Dreaming the Emerald City two foundational collections of Seattle are brought together for the first time: the collections of Charles and Emma Frye and of Horace C. Henry. The Fryes and Henry collected art during roughly the same period, from the 1890s to the 1920s, and they cemented their legacies by keeping their collections in Seattle. In 1927 the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington became the state’s first public art museum, and the Frye Art Museum, named after both Charles and Emma, opened to the public in 1952 as the city’s first free museum.
