Art from the Vault




The Circumcision

The Cummer has an extensive collection of works on paper that help provide a well rounded experience for museum guests, along with paintings and sculpture in the galleries.   Unfortunately, due to the fragile nature of works on paper – light sensitivity and over exposure – we are not able to show these works on paper for long periods of time.  With the  new installation of our Medieval gallery, we have been able to pull four works on paper from the vault which have not been on view for a few years.  



The Flagellation of Christ and Christ Crowned with Thorns


Jonah and the Whale


On your next visit to the museum, check out the Haskell Gallery which houses our medieval collection to see a woodcut on paper by Albrecht Dürer, The Circumcision, from the Life of the Virgin; two gouaches on vellum by Jacob de Gheyn II, titled The Flagellation of Christ and Christ Crowned with Thorns; and an illuminated manuscript page from a Latin Bible, depicting the story of Jonah and the Whale.
