Clarisse Madelene Laurent, "Eggs," 1892.
Oil on canvas.
Clarisse Madelene Laurent (1857-1940) was born in New York City soon after her parents left France as political exiles. The family moved to Topeka in 1858. Laurent was a prominent member of the Topeka arts community throughout her life, serving as the superintendent of the art department at the Free Fair in Topeka and as charter member of the Topeka Arts Guild. In the late 1880’s Laurent went to Paris to study art under Gustave-Rodolphe Boulanger and Jules-Joseph Lefebvre. Upon her return to the United States, she established a studio in Oakland, California. Her work was exhibited widely, most prominently at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. "Eggs," 1892, was displayed in the American Pavilion.

Currently on view in Endangered Art.
(Attributed) Albert Bierstadt, "Niagara Falls," late 19th century.
Both paintings attributed to Albert Bierstadt in the Mulvane Art Museum's current exhibition "Endangered Art," deal with the inherent power and grandeur of the American landscape.
Niagara Falls was a subject treated by Bierstadt and many of his contemporaries, such as Frederic Edwin Church, and can be contextualized within a larger aesthetic theme that engaged artists in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries: the Sublime.
The concept of the Sublime can be traced all the way back to the 1st century CE work of Greek writer Longinus. In the eighteenth century, Irish philosopher Edmund Burke wrote, "A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Idea of the Sublime and Beautiful," 1756. Burke's definition of the Sublime dealt with the overwhelming, and awe-inspiring power of nature-- its vastness, darkness, and danger.
Intrinsic to the formulation of an American identity was the treatment and depiction of America's natural resources. American artists, especially those belonging to the Hudson River School, sought to express American landscape in the Sublime mode. With its rushing water, roaring sounds, and its thrilling plunge in height, Niagara Falls magnificently encapsulated the splendor of American landscape and the emotive possibility of the Sublime.

On this day in 1975, Philomene Bennett met with fellow artists in her studio to address "How the Artist Can Benefit from Centralization." The result of this meeting was a call for self-organization, and eventually the organization of the Kansas City Artist Coalition in August 1976. Bennett was not only a founding member of the KCAC, but also served as Board President in 1977.
This month, for #WomensHistoryMonth join the Mulvane Art Museum in celebrating the women artists who are represented in our permanent collection.
