Special Exhibition Gallery - Americans in Paris, 1860-1900

Traveling February 22, 2006-January 28, 2007 to Three Venues

By


Comprised of approximately 100 paintings, many of which are world famous and have never before been hung together, Americans in Paris, 1860-1900 explores those heady decades when United States artists flocked to France to study, absorb and expand upon their painting techniques. Paris, in turn, educated, nurtured, promoted and even became home to a select group of American expatriates. It was a symbiotic relationship that permanently changed the face of American art going forward.

Here we have a exceptional selection of works from this internationally organized traveling exhibition. Prominently featured artists James Abbott Mc Neill Whistler (1834-1903), Mary Cassatt (1844-1926), John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) and Childe Hassam (1859-1935) are joined by a host of other perennial favorites in a visual feast of 47 portraits, interiors and scapes from land, sea and city.
