Long Exposure: A Century of Pictorialism at FJJMA

The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art will be displaying Long Exposure: Pictorialism from Feb. 25 through June 27.

Pictorialism, an international photographic movement that emerged late in the 19th century in Europe and soon spread to the United States, argued for photography’s status as a fine art through the adoption of techniques and subjects associated with painting.

After its invention around 1830, photography was generally believed to objectively depict the natural world. In the early 1840s, however, Scottish photographers David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson began making portraits that period viewers compared to the style of Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn. By 1870, Henry Peach Robinson, Julia Margaret Cameron, and other British photographers sought to distinguish the medium from science. To that end, they modeled their images after Impressionist paintings, used special filters, and manipulated negatives to achieve a painterly effect.

While the movement waned in the 1910s, this exhibition demonstrates Pictorialism’s lasting influence on amateurs, art photographers, Hollywood portraitists, and photographers of the American West. Long Exposure traces Pictorialism’s nineteenth-century beginnings to the present day, when contemporary artists and photographers continue to manipulate photographic images to create new art.

The museum's gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.The museum will also be closed on the following university holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.

Admission to the museum is complimentary, thanks to a donation made by The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department.
