This installation from the permanent collection presented the dominant American styles of landscape painting leading up to the 20th century, including the Hudson River School, Tonalism and the American Barbizon School. Alfred Thompson Brichter’s painting At the South Head, Grand Manan, anchored the installation. Also included were landscapes by European artists whose styles and concerns mirrored those popular in America.
