Scientific-Minded or Not, You Will See So Much Detail In These Paintings of Texas Birds

Amon Carter Museum of American Art will present Seeing in Detail, Scott and Stuart Gentling’s watercolors of Texas birds. Seeing in Detail features 23 of Scott and Stuart’s watercolors from the museum’s permanent collection.

When you view Scott and Stuart Gentling’s watercolors of Texas birds, you’ll want to get close. The level of detail is extraordinary—hundreds of brushstrokes make up each feather, and there are hundreds of feathers! The more time you spend with these paintings, the more you’ll appreciate the unique way the brothers instilled the natural world with a sense of order and meaning.

Seeing in Detail is the first of two consecutive exhibitions at the Carter dedicated to these Fort Worth artists and their unique approach to painting the natural world. The museum recently announced the establishment of the Gentling Study Center, which supports the acquisition, research, and conservation of the work and archives of Scott and Stuart Gentling. Seeing in Detail: Scott and Stuart Gentling's Birds of Texas will be on display until December 1, 2019.

The host of the exhibit, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, explores the diversity and complexity of American creativity through our expansive collection and exciting exhibitions. Admission is free, and the experience is priceless. So, we hope that you choose to join us!
