The exhibition features works by American greats such as John Singleton Copley, Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, John Singer Sargent, Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, George Bellows, and Edward Hopper. Highlights include Stuart's depiction of George Washington, Bierstadt's majestic MOUNT CORCORAN, Sargent's portrait MARIE BULOZ PAILLERON, and Cassatt's masterwork YOUNG GIRL AT A WINDOW.
