Samuel F.B. Morse's Gallery of the Louvre and the Art of Invention 
CLOSES JUNE 4

The great system of nerves [of the telegraph] will make the world one great Sensorium." — Samuel F.B. Morse

Long-distance communication was the shared purpose of both Morse’s “Gallery of the Louvre” and his telegraph. Begun while he was living in Paris in 1831, he conceived the painting as a way to introduce European masterpieces to American audiences decades before the founding of art museums in the United States.

The show includes early telegraph machines from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, 19 th -century paintings and prints from Reynolda’s own nationally recognized collection and old master prints from Wake Forest University. Morse’s monumental painting—also his last—was little seen by the public until recently. Don't miss the exhibition in its final days!
