Around the turn of the last century, American artists who enjoyed new prospects for travel and education were inspired by European masters and contemporaries to depict natural landscapes in their own land. This exhibition captures a particular moment in American history, in which painters were poised on modernity and mass industrialization and longed to capture the comforts and beauties of the bucolic countryside.
