DESCRIPTION

MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, ST. PETERSBURG PRESENTS STELLAR EXHIBITION OF AMERICAN IMPRESSIONIST PAINTINGS

 Transcending Vision: American Impressionism 1870-1940 from the Bank of America Collection features more than 120 paintings, drawings, and prints by more than 70 artists, including some of America’s most important. This spectacular exhibition, on view from August 28, 2010-January 9, 2011, is mainly comprised of oil paintings and encompasses the Hudson River School, American Impressionism, and a few works on the cusp of Modernism. It focuses on one of the most fertile periods in American art and history. Our young country was trying to find its identity and direction, especially in the artistic realm.

 This exhibition is part of the bank’s Art in our Communities™ program, which shares significant works from the Bank of America Collection with museums and nonprofit galleries across the country and around the world. In 2009, the bank lent its Andy Warhol Portfolios: Life and Legends to the Museum with impressive results, attracting 33,586 people during off-season.
