Rediscover late 19th- and early 20th-century painters who left the United States as expatriates and returned to shape the course of American art. In Paris, they trained under the influence of the École des Beaux-Arts and studied the “old master” works at the Louvre but then went beyond traditional practices to experiment with new ideas and techniques. Whistler to Cassatt: American Painters in France examines the rich variety and complexity of American painting in the advent of modernism, as French avant-garde philosophies and styles melded with American individualism.


Assembled from international collections, the exhibition features more than 100 paintings by James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Theodore Robinson, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Elizabeth Nourse, Cecilia Beaux, and many others.
