The Mystery of the Museum Lion

Vero Beach Museum of Art Curator Anke Van Wagenberg was on a mission to find the origins of the museum’s majestic bronze lion, the sculpture that guards the entrance to the museum. Her detective work includes stories from more than a century ago from all over the world, and reveals why the lion lived in The Moorings for a time, and how it made its way to its current magnificent spot at the museum in 1982.

Impressions of a Living Legacy

In its 150-year history, Findlay Galleries has sold paintings by major artists, including Mary Cassatt, Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso. Along with their renown, these names speak to the range of artistic styles that Findlay Galleries has represented: from the French impressionism of Monet and the American Cassatt to the surrealism of Dalí to the cubism of Picasso.
