This Must Be the Place: Five Centuries of Landscape ArtRoy Lichtenstein This Must Be the Place, 1965

Curated by students in Wesleyan's Spring 2002 Museum Studies course, this exhibition spanned five centuries of landscape art in prints, drawings, and paintings.

The exhibition included works by Dürer, Rembrandt, Canaletto, Miró, Sheeler, Lichtenstein, and many other artists. Among the themes it explored was that of how landscape frequently becomes a portrait of a place and expresses it in scenes of daily life or in more monumental pictorial essays. This Must Be the Place was a pendant exhibition to Vis-à-Vis: Five Centuries of Portraiture, on view later in the fall of 2002.
