"Americans in Paris"
2006-02-22 until 2006-05-21
National Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Paris was the centre of the art world in the 19th century, and a magnet for American art students and artists, eager to experience the cosmopolitan delights of the city and to steep themselves in its artistic atmosphere. For the first time in Britain, this exhibition at the National Gallery in London, will look at why American artists were drawn to Paris, what they produced there, and how their art changed. The exhibition includes well-known artists - James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt - and others who will largely be unknown to audiences here, including Cecilia Beaux, Elizabeth Nourse and Theodore Robinson.

Highlights include Whistler's 'White Girl' from the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, Sargent's astonishing painting of the daughters of Edward Darley Boit, from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and his notorious 'Madame X' from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

'Americans in Paris 1860 - 1900' is organised by the National Gallery, London and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
