McCosh In Europe

October 28, 2014 to February 15, 2015

McCosh in Europe features works he made in the late 1920s, while traveling in England, France, Ireland, and Italy on a scholarship from the Art Institute of Chicago. The exhibition also features works created during his sabbatical from the UO in the late 1950s, when he returned to many of these places as well as Spain. McCosh in Europe traces the evolution of McCosh’s style from the more naturalistic landscapes and urban scenes of his days in art school to the more abstracted evocations for which he became so recognized.
