Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Isle of Sylt
Artist: Eugen Gustav Dücker (1841-1916)
Creation Date: 1879
Origin: Germany
Medium: Oil, canvas

For the start of the summer months, The Drexel Collection selected Isle of Sylt, a bright beach scene, by Eugen Gustav Dücker painted in 1879. Dücker studied painting in St. Petersburg until receiving a six year scholarship to study painting in Düsseldorf, Germany – ultimately going on to be a professor at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Dücker was thought to be one of the founders of modern landscape painting. In 2014, this painting underwent major conservation, and now looks drastically different and more vibrant than before. Check out The Drexel Collection’s New & Conserved Pieces to see more and visit Isle of Sylt in the Picture Gallery located on the third floor of Drexel’s Main Building.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
