We are pleased to announce the launch of the Marchutz Legacy Catalogue Raisonné Project. This long-awaited project will allow us to synchronize all of our endeavors to collect, catalog, and manage information on Leo’s work. It will be the first coordinated effort to digitally record the body of Leo’s artwork and related documents for future generations.
This colossal task, will be undertaken in collaboration with PanOpticon, a cloud-based information management system, using the uniform data standards recommended by leading members of the Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association. The PanOpticon platform hosts the catalogues raisonnés of over 50 artists, including Paul Cezanne, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent.
Leo Marchutz has left his mark on many of us. His artwork and his teachings have given us a deeper understanding of art in general, of the importance of vision (sight and insight), as well as the relationship between art, nature, and the self. Many of us can also be grateful to Leo for imparting a larger sense of purpose to our lives, providing impetus to pursue our own creative destiny, and sometimes even influencing our livelihood (as artists, educators, architects, administrators…).
To all of those who have been moved by Leo’s work and artistic vision, we ask you to support the Marchutz Legacy Catalogue Raisonné Project. Be among the first to get involved in this exciting project and give back a little of what Leo Marchutz has given to you.
