Spanning nearly 200 years, this exhibition continues to explore concepts about American art and the American landscape evidenced in the recent presentation of "The American West." The survey begins with early landscape practitioners, progresses throughout the nineteenth century and continues through the end of the twentieth century. In addition to oil paintings and watercolors, the exhibition includes photographs and graphite and mixed-medium drawings. (left: Joseph R. Meeker, Day on the Yazoo, 1885, oil on canvas. Purchase.
