  • Coast of Jamaica

    1874
    Artist Martin Johnson Heade (American, 1819–1904)

    Description

    Maxim Karolik loved Heade and gave the Museum many of his paintings as well as works by other nineteenth-century American artists. However, he had not acquired a large tropical landscape by Heade and the MFA purchased “Coast of Jamaica” in 1981, to fill this gap. The delicate handling of foliage, the luminous treatment of the sea, and the drama of the fast-moving storm make this painting a fitting addition to the Museum’s unsurpassed collection of Heade’s work.

  • Sand Dunes, Oceano, California

    1936
    Edward Weston (American, 1886–1958)

    Description

    Edward Weston’s extensive 1936 series of the dunes in Oceano, California, focuses on line and pattern, in this case the sinuous lines and rolling shapes created by the wind and tides on the sand. He and his fellow Bay Area photographers were early proponents of the large-format cameras and small aperture settings that produced maximum image sharpness and great depth of field. As a result, Weston’s contact prints of his Oceano views possess a sparkling clarity in the highlights and a tonal richness in the shadows that transform the flowing topography into a stunning visual puzzle that is at once highly detailed yet very abstract.
