Public Tour: Painting Nature in the American Gilded Age
Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 12:30pm
Drawing from the Cantor’s permanent collection, this exhibition 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.
Tours do not require a reservation and are free of charge.
