"Inside and Out: Scenes of American Life from the Addison Collection"
2000-09-26 until 2000-12-31
Addison Gallery of American Art
As part of its ongoing efforts to make the range and depth of the Addison Gallery's collection known to the public, this
exhibition focuses on depictions of everyday American life. The selected paintings, prints, and drawings, dating from
the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, document family holidays, domestic activities, interactions of adults
and children, and the range of work and play both in urban and rural settings.
These genre works, ranging from formal
family portraits, to informal scenes of workers in the landscape, to popular prints produced for publications and mass
distribution, represent artists such as Eastman Johnson, Winslow Homer, Enoch Wood Perry, John Quidor,
Worthington Whittredge, John Sloan, George Luks, Currier and Ives, and Louis Prang.
