Picturing America: Signature Works from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art

June 14, 2014 - August 24, 2014
Virginia and Alfred Kennedy and Philip Henry Alston Jr. Galleries

Fifty-seven works from the Westmoreland's permanent collection make up this exhibition that spans 200 years of American art, from colonial times to the mid-20th century, as the United States came into its own as the cultural capital of the world. Seen through the subject areas of portraiture, still-life, landscape and narrative painting, the artists represented in this exhibition serve as a survey of American art. The exhibition features oil and tempera paintings and bronze sculptures by artists ranging from Charles Willson Peale to Mary Cassatt to Robert Henri to Harriet Frishmuth.

"Picturing America: Signature Works from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art" is organized and toured by the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Greensburg, PA.
