An artist's dream came true in 1965 when celebrated Wisconsin painter and naturalist Owen J. Gromme received a commission from Marshall & Ilsley Bank. Gromme would capture the wildlife and landscapes he loved in a collection of forty-three paintings for the bank's then-new Milwaukee building. In the early 1970s, Gromme's friendship with the Woodson Art Museum's founders led to his pivotal role as organizer of the fledgling Museum's inaugural exhibition. Today, Gromme is recognized as the "father of Birds in Art." This story comes full circle, thanks to BMO Harris Bank's generous 2011 gift of the collection which debuts in its new permanent home at the Woodson Art Museum that Gromme helped launch thirty-seven years ago. Highlighted by a re-creation of the artist's studio, these paintings reveal Gromme at his best along with his reverence for the flora and fauna of his home state.
