American Made: Selections from The Huntington’s Early American Art Collections
The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Gardens, San Marino, CA, 5 September 2015 — 4 January 2016

While a portion of the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art is closed for expansion and reinstallation, 25 selections from among the earliest works in the collection are spotlighted in a temporary installation, focusing on masterworks in various media that were made between 1700 and 1868. Paintings by the most influential American artists of the period, such as Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley, Gilbert Stuart, and Frederick Edwin Church, are joined by representative furniture, silver, and sculpture from the colonial, Federal, and Civil War periods.
