Brushed With Light: American Landscape Watercolors
On view through January 13th!
This exhibition showcases eighty important works from the Brooklyn Museum’s world-renowned collection of American watercolors of landscape imagery. Ranging in date from 1777 to 1952, these watercolors represent major movements in American landscape painting: late eighteenth-century topographical and Picturesque view painting; the Hudson River School and Pre-Raphaelitism; post–Civil War realism; American Impressionism; modernist abstraction, and American Scene painting.
This exhibition is supported in part by the Brooklyn Museum American Art Council.
