July 21, 2011–January 15, 2012


In a groundbreaking collaboration, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts and the LDS Church History Museum have partnered to present the largest joint exhibitions ever mounted of work by Utah artist LeConte Stewart (1891-1990). With a combined total of over 200 paintings and works on paper, each venue will feature rarely seen masterworks from private and public collections that focus on urban and rural scenes from Stewart's dynamic career.


From the despair of the Great Depression to the powerful beauty of Utah's rural landscapes, these exhibitions provide compelling insight into the life and work of this important artist.
