"The Great Wonder: Violet Oakley and the Gothic Revival at Vassar" online exhibition and brochure

This exhibition brings together preparatory drawings and other materials related to Violet Oakley’s vibrant painted triptych, The Great Wonder: A Vision of the Apocalypse. Oakley created this visionary work and its surrounding decorative architectural scheme for the living room of Vassar’s Alumnae House on the occasion of its opening in 1924.

Organizers of the exhibition include the Lehman Loeb Art Center’s Curator of Academic Programs, Elizabeth Nogrady, Christopher Platts (Dept. of Art), and the students of ART 218: The Museum in History, Theory, and Practice. This exhibition is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
