"Lure of the West: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum"
2001-04-14 until 2001-06-10
Orlando Museum of Art
Orlando, FL, USA United States of America

Lure of the West features more than 60 paintings and sculptures from the 1820s to the 1940s created by American artists fascinated with the American West. The exhibition tells the story of Western American art beginning in the early 19th century, when explorer-artists such as George Catlin traveled through vast territories painting the Native American populations and scenes of their everyday life.

Later in the century, other artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran focused on the drama of the landscape. Their paintings are credited with helping to establish some of the great western national parks and were important in forming the mystique of the West, eventually popularized in literature and film.
