Bryant-owned painting gets some national exposure


"Figure of Discovery (Columbus)" by William Morris Hunt

“Figure of Discovery (Columbus)” by William Morris Hunt, a painting that is part of the Art @ Bryant collection, is featured on the cover of the October 2008 issue of College & Research Libraries News, the journal of the Association of College & Research Libraries.  The cover reproduces the painting quite nicely, and there’s a brief, interesting write-up about its history on one of the contents pages, but if you’ve managed to misplace your copy somehow (I mean, you do subscribe, right?), you can see the genuine article on display in one of the cases by the entrance to the rear stairs on the library’s main floor.  Be sure to check it out sometime!
