"William Merritt Chase: Modern American Landscapes, 1886-1890"
2000-05-26 until 2000-08-13
Brooklyn Museum of Art
Brooklyn, NY, USA United States of America

This exhibition investigates in detail for the first time this famous American painter's urban landscapes, which are recognized as the first significant works in which a variant Impressionist style was used to portray American landscape subjects. The thirty-five carefully selected works show, among other places, Brooklyn's Prospect Park and Tompkins Park, the parklike interior of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Manhattan's Central Park, and the changing shorelines of the two and once-separate cities of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Armed with fresh discoveries about the artist's life and art, this study sheds new light on how Chase resolved the problem of how to be both 'American' and 'modern' in the international art world.

Organization: Barbara Dayer Gallati, Curator of American Painting and Sculpture at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, is curator of the exhibition and author of the book accompanying it.

Publication: William Merritt Chase: Modern American Landscapes, 1886-1890, by Barbara Dayer Gallati, will be copublished by the BMA and Harry N. Abrams, Inc., and will include 124 illustrations, including 54 plates in full color.
