Mediterranea

American Art from the Graham D. Williford Collection

On View October 2, 2020 - January 10, 2021

For American artists to be considered serious and cultured in the 19th and early 20th centuries, they not only needed to study in Europe, but travel widely there as well. This exhibition looks at how artists of that time captured the diversity and distinctiveness of certain places that make up the Mediterranean region, including Italy, Spain, the Middle East, and North Africa. Stylistically, artists expressed their interest in light and color with a loose and fresh brushwork, far from the European academic tradition of the time. This presentation includes paintings by George Peter Alexander Healy (1813-1894), William Merritt Chase (1849-1916), Frank Duveneck (1849-1919), and Theodore Robinson (1852-1896).
