Anyone who has been to Bass Hall and marveled at the 80-foot mural adorning its dome has seen the work of Fort Worth artists Scott and Stuart Gentling. Brothers and lifelong artistic collaborators, their artistic interests spanned centuries and continents, resulting in a varied body of work that ranges from emulations of naturalist-artists like John James Audubon to imagined visualizations of the Aztec empire.

In the first-ever comprehensive retrospective of the brothers’ work, "Imagined Realism" explores their distinct style that defied the movements of their times. Featuring more than 150 works and archival objects, this exhibition marks a multiyear effort to situate their visionary artistic careers on the national stage of the larger art world in which they worked.
