Looking Bac: Ferdinand Bac 1859-1952

Artist, writer, and landscape architect, Ferdinand Bac accomplished more in his ninety-three years than most people could in twice that time. Looking Bac: Ferdinand Bac, 1859–1952 brings together Bac’s drawings and prints, generously loaned by Madame Sylviane Jullian, and the UIMA permanent collection. Divided into three sections—biography and nostalgia, women, and World War II—the exhibition examines Bac’s career.

Looking Bac is curated by UIMA Assistant Curator of Special Projects Kimberly Musial Datchuk, with translations and research assistance from Natalie J. A. Benson, PhD, Drake University.

It is generously supported by the Koza Family Fund, the Members Special Exhibition Fund, and the Richard V.M. Corton, M.D. and Janet Y. Corton Exhibition Fund.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact the UIMA in advance at 319-335-1727.
