Wild in the Country: A Loan Exhibition from the Genesee Museum at Pebble Hill Plantation, Thomasville, GA

. September 26, 2017

An important exhibition of sporting and wildlife paintings, drawings and sculpture, on loan from the Genesee Museum in Mumford, New York, will be on view at the historic Pebble Hill Plantation, the historical plantation and Museum located in Thomasville, GA, November 3 – April 29. “Wild in the Country” will present the ‘Big Four’ – arguably the four most influential wildlife artists of the 19th and 20th century – Bruno Liljefors, Wilhelm Kuhnhert, Carl Rungius and Bob Kuhn. These four painters changed wildlife painting, transforming the genre into an art form filled with sweeping and innovative portrayals of the natural world.

Both the Genesee Museum and Pebble Hill Plantation are regarded as two of the nation’s premiere galleries of Sporting Art. The Loan Exhibition from the Genesee Museum is the first in a new program of exhibitions that Pebble Hill Plantation will host from associated museum and art institutions in the United States.
