Gallery Talk Series: Painting Nature in the American Gilded Age
Curator Melissa Yuen, curatorial fellow for American and European art to 1900, discusses the exhibition, which considers how nature was depicted by American artists from the 1880s to 1910, an era of unprecedented industrialization and urban development. Through landscapes, portraits, and still lifes, the exhibition highlights the importance of nature for artists and the public, both of whom increasingly were affected by machines, cities, and crowds.
