About the exhibition
Overview of the heights of the American watercolor movement from about 1870 to 1940, which shows a deeper understanding of the central place of watercolor in the great history of American art.
In the second half of the XIX century, watercolor painting - once considered the medium most suitable for amateur artists or preliminary sketches - turned into a significant force in American art. At the turn of the century, the popularity of watercolor painting, as well as the qualities that its leading artists had the courage, integrity and cheerfulness, led many critics to proclaim watercolor - american art.

Working in a wide range of styles and motifs, amateur artists and professional artists created watercolors of technical brilliance and charming beauty that widened the boundaries of the medium and positioned watercolor on the front lines of American art.
