Fine Feathered Friends: Birds as Mainstay and Muse
Opening January 4, 2020

They occupy our forests, fields, parks, beaches, farms, backyards and even our homes. Indeed, birds are everywhere. But many New Jerseyans remain largely unaware of the profound natural and cultural significance of these ubiquitous avian creatures.

This exhibition brings together a wide assortment of artifacts and specimens to explore two concepts about our fine feathered friends – their status as an important ecological mainstay and their historical role as a design-inspiring force – or muse – for New Jersey artisans in the decorative arts.

About the Portraits

Thomas Gainsborough’s 1776 oil painting of a teenaged St. George depicts him just before he shipped out for New York to fight against the growing American Revolution. The portrait is on loan to the Museum from Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne).

Hugh Douglas Hamilton’s 1795 oil painting shows a grief-stricken St. George mourning at his wife’s tomb. Hamilton painted this portrait as a movement for Irish independence, which St. George opposed, was on the rise. The portrait is on loan to the Museum from National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin.
