In 2015, Paul G. Allen launched Seeing Nature, an unprecedented exhibition of 39 landscape masterworks from his private collection, an opportunity to see the natural world through the eyes of some of history’s greatest artists. In a three-part series of short films, world class conservators and curators offer a behind the scenes look at the conservation, installation, and inspiration for the exhibit. Seeing Nature will be displayed across the country at the institutions hosting this three year traveling exhibition, part of the museum experience that sheds new light on well-loved masterpieces from Canaletto to Klimt.
“Places with unique light … that creates a certain mood. Both the antiquity of Venice, and the light and the architecture all blend together to create special moods that I think painters are attracted to.”
“There’s a theory that when we see a landscape it’s a way of connecting with our ancestral past. Though no one really knows if that’s true or not - but certainly you’re eye and your imagination is drawn into the landscape and it tends to make you think of what’s happening in the future.”
