Lois Dodd’s naturalism: Elegant and intricate

Contributed by Abshalom Jac Lahav / The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, has reopened after a stunning 70,000 square-foot renovation. The new building was carefully designed and constructed to blend into the surrounding New England landscape and weave together a vast tapestry of art and science. It is fitting that “Natural Order,” a retrospective of the brilliant naturalist painter Lois Dodd’s work featuring almost 80 paintings from the mid-1950s to 2021, is the revamped museum’s first major exhibition. Her personal landscapes and interiors embody a unique style that is both sentimental and painterly.
