Museum Apse

This gallery focuses on “grand manner” European and American art from 1850 to 1915. Heroically scaled portraits by the Englishman John Hoppner and by French painter François Gérard face each other across the Apse, representing two generations in the emergence of Romanticism. Two nearby sculptures—Nydia, by Ann Arbor native and master sculptor Randolph Rogers and Flora by James Wyatt—speak to the Apse’s original character as a statuary hall.
