Visit the ongoing Conversations installation to see treasures from the permanent collection, recent gifts, and select loans. Currently organized in broad thematic categories of History and Myth, Religion Redefined, Gesture and Pose, and A Sense of Place, Conversations encourages connections between works created in disparate cultures and time periods.
Old favorites such as paintings by William Merritt Chase and Lavinia Fontana are joined by acquisitions of pieces by the contemporary artist Sadie Barnette, whose recent work examines the subculture of horse racing, and the nineteenth-century American painters Josephine Walters, a landscape painter associated with the Hudson River School, and Mary Russell Smith, enlivening and enriching the permanent collection gallery.
