DESCRIPTION

An American Collection: The Grand Salon 1820-1970
Sept. 16 – Dec. 31, 2011

A salon-style installation of approximately 120 paintings from the museum’s collection, An American Collection spans the period 1820-1970 and reflects the diversity of American art and the Academy’s membership. The installation features portraits, landscapes, figure, and genre paintings covering a broad range of styles from the Romantic era of the 1820s through the re-emergence of Realism in the 1960s. Selections will include works by Samuel F. B. Morse, Asher B. Durand, William Merritt Chase, Frank Duveneck, Henry Ossawa Tanner, John Steuart Curry, Isabel Bishop, Charles Wilbert White, and Richard Estes.
