John Sloan, 'Norman's Woem,' 1917

Follow the Sun: The Holland and Orton Collections

The Holland and Orton Collections contain a fascinating array of artistic themes and approaches from the romanticism of the Hudson River School to the social concerns of American Realism and American Scene Painting. The largest areas of focus, however, are works of American Impressionism illustrating a dynamic evolution of influence from Europe to America to the Pacific Northwest. Throughout it all, the landscape endured as a favorite subject representing ideal beauty as well as westward ambition and migration. Relatedly, depictions of indigenous lands must be considered in light of land seizure and settler colonization. Open Mon, Wed, Fri from 1-4 pm.
