Gerald Peters Gallery Contemporary

The focus of the present exhibition is a collection of art from the mid 1880s through World War I, all by American artists who had lived, studied, or worked in Paris.

The other common denominator is that these artists embrace that moment’s emerging modern viewpoint: the works are non-narrative.  From Beaux-Arts to Impressionists to Ash Can the works collected reflect a taste for classic American  images of beauty whether depicting women, children, landscape, or still life.

Among the artists represented are John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Maria Oakey Dewing, Edward Potthast, William Glackens, and Everett Shinn.
