America Learns to Paint 1760-1900

ID : 794   
« back to classes page
For the first 150 years there was little besides itinerant portrait painting in America.  Beginning in 1760 artists including Copley, West, Trumbull, Morse, and C.W. Peale changed everything.  By the early 1800s a rapidly developing America prompted a nostalgia for a disappearing America as captured by the Hudson River School (Cole, Durand, etc.) and frontier artists such as Bingham and Catlin.  The late
1800s brought Realism/Impressionism to America as created by Whistler, Sargent, Cassatt, Homer, Hassam, Tiffany, Eakins, and Remington.  Explore with us the works of these home grown masters.
