The paintings of German émigré artist Hans Meyer-Kassel (1872-1952) have hung in the castles of kings and the homes of presidents. Decades after his death, his artwork can be found in state capitols, university campuses, historical societies, courthouses, government buildings and museums across the United States and Europe. His artwork lives in archives, books, magazines and even on a United States postage stamp-as well as in the homes of scores of Nevada families. Now, for the first time ever, a comprehensive survey of this prolific but under-appreciated artist’s work will be presented for the public. Hans Meyer-Kassel: Artist of Nevada will be on view February 24 through September 2 at the Nevada Museum of Art, Donald W. Reynolds Center for the Visual Arts, E. L. Wiegand Gallery in downtown Reno, Nevada. A major publication and significant regional events during the exhibition celebrate Meyer-Kassel’s legacy.
