On view now: The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America
The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America captures these initial moments of a country looking to define itself and provide an ethos for its people. The artworks, largely painted between 1750 and 1904, cover a wide swath of America’s adolescence, are significant in that they themselves helped create the American Dream. The exhibition has been organized by the New-York Historical Society.
