Thomas Sully: Painted Performance

Thomas Sully: Painted Performance, on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum  October 11, 2013-January 5, 2014, celebrates Sully’s theatrical aesthetic, with a close look at those themes that define his oeuvre. Sully arrived in his adopted city of Philadelphia an ambitious artist and became an American classic, but it is his range of subject matter rather than the chronology of his life that carries this exhibition.
