The Minnesota Marine Art Museum has unveiled three new paintings. Donors and contributors gathered Sunday during one of its twice-yearly reveals and fundraising events.
The works unveiled included an 8-foot tall rendering of The Statue Of Liberty by Edward Moran from 1875, titled “Commerce of Nations Rendering Homage to Liberty.” There’s also an 1864 landscape piece by Gustave Corbet titled “Source of the Lison” and “Boats (Gloucester)” by Jane Peterson.
The Moran piece featuring the Statue of Liberty hangs across from “Washington Crossing the Delaware” in a celebration of patriotism.
The Corbet and Moran works will be on display immediately, while the Peterson piece will move into storage for just less than a year before moving out again for viewing for an exhibition.
