Ongoing
Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art

Experience 47 artworks from some of the greater European artists of the past.

Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art showcases the collection of Charles Phelps and Anna Sinton Taft, displaying 47 artworks from some of the greatest European artists of the past. Among the featured artworks are masterpieces from Thomas Gainsborough, J.M.W. Turner, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Charles François Daubigny. Also on display are decorative arts featuring Qing dynasty Chinese ceramics and 18th-century watches.

As the Taft Museum of Art embarks on the restoration of their 200-year-old historic house, they have entrusted Cincinnati Museum Center to care for and display nearly 50 artworks from their collection. Organized by subject matter, Borrowed Gems shows the full range of paintings collected by the Tafts. The couple enjoyed collecting portraits, scenes from daily life and landscapes that could also serve as educational models for artists working in Cincinnati who would look at, and even copy, works by masters of the past.
