Select Portraits from the Morse Collection

The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum is open by appointment only – schedule yours here

Portraiture in America in the latter half of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century took on a different purpose. Rather than romantic portrayals of royals and magnates, paintings of people who commissioned portraits showed qualities beyond the physical attributes of their subjects. John Singer Sargent (1856–1925), Charles Hawthorne (1872–1930), and Cecilia Beaux (1855–1942) were portraitists that let the paint express the individual’s character and who did not simply reproduce the subject’s likeness on canvas. Portraits from the Morse Museum’s American painting collection are part of its repository of American art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Christmas in the Park

 

Each year, on the first Thursday of December, the Morse Museum helps launch the holiday season in Winter Park when it lights up Tiffany windows in Central Park and presents the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble in concert. This December is the 41st annual celebration of Christmas in the Park.

Christmas in the Park was started by Hugh and Jeannette McKean, the Morse Museum’s benefactors, in 1979 as a way to share a part of their rare Tiffany collection with the public in an informal setting. Today, the Morse and the City of Winter Park co-sponsor the event.

The event begins at 6:15 pm when the signal is given to turn on the window lights. The concert concludes about 8:00 pm, and the windows remain lighted until 8:30 pm.

 

Date :
Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 6:15 to 8:30pm
