Emil Holzhauer: The Georgia Years
August 29, 2009 - November 29, 2009
This exhibition focused on Emil Holzhauer’s images of Georgia, the locality with which he is most closely associated. Born in Schwäbish Gmünd, Germany, Emil Holzhauer arrived in America in 1906—without prospects and unable to speak English. A century later, his work is lauded as thoroughly American, in terms of its style, subject matter, and sensibility. Holzhauer favored working in watercolor and pastel, but also mastered oil. Among the locales he painted were places he lived and visited, including upstate New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Maine; Canada; Mexico, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.
