Nearly Secret Drawing and Painting Show at The Met

American Painters in Italy: From Copley to Sargent

Go to the American Wing, in the back, take the glass elevator to M, which feels like a small half-floor, and there you will find 53 fantastic pieces by American painters who created work in Italy.

At any other Museum, this would be a major show, yet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one must look for it, even on their website it is at the bottom of the Current Exhibitions Page.

This show includes 10 watercolors by Sargent, a charcoal and pastel drawing by Whistler, 2 watercolors by Prendergast, 2 watercolors by George Inness, and several pieces by Jasper Cropsey.

For many artists, this will be an important show because it represents something they can relate to; the very real experience of an artist going abroad to creat work. Visit this show before it closes on June 7th, 2018
