Painters and Paintings
A groundbreaking new exhibition of extraordinary paintings associated with the Early American South opened in March in the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum.
“Painters and Paintings in the Early American South” is the first exhibition of its kind that explores the scope of this region of early American art while bringing new vitality, excitement and scholarship to the forefront. Colonial Williamsburg has assembled these exquisite objects from 20 museums and collections through years of painstaking research and collaboration to produce a stunning exhibition of 70 portraits (preview) and 83 landscapes and seascapes and other artworks pertinent to the Atlantic coast states from Maryland southward and the upper coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
The exhibit runs through Sept. 7, 2014.
