Americans in Italy

January 19, 2013 - April 21, 2013
Boone and George-Ann Knox Gallery II

Corresponding with an upper-level art history course taught by chief curator Paul Manoguerra, “Americans in Italy” features art objects dealing with Italian landscapes, people, buildings and life fashioned by American artists. As a result of their Italian travels within a Grand Tour or as expatriates, many American painters created a body of work addressing seminal questions about nature, history and national destiny. This special, small display draws from works on paper in the permanent collection of the Georgia Museum of Art and makes connections to objects on full-time display elsewhere in the museum.
