Museum Exhibition Painting Tradition

Exhibit Details

A survey of 18th – 20th century paintings, A Painting Tradition looks at the importance of the portrait and the figure in Europe and America. From military portraits and members of the aristocracy, to the working class and beloved horses, this exhibition explores the various styles of portrait and figure painting that were prevalent from the Georgian to Victorian periods in Europe and through the Early and Revolutionary periods in America. 

 

In addition to a survey of the figure in painting, this exhibition will include study paintings and sketchbooks to examine the ways that artists studied painting and developed their techniques. Learn about the people behind the portraits through a look at the lives of the artists and the sitters along with the historical events that drove the production of portraits.
