American Journeys – Visions of Place
American Journeys—Visions of Place is a new installation of the Corcoran's renowned pre-1945 American paintings and sculpture collection that conveys the changing notion of place in the history of American art. Featuring more paintings—approximately 110—than have ever been on view in the galleries of historic American art, and for the first time in over a decade integrating paintings and sculpture for a total of approximately 125 works on view, the reinstallation reflects the Corcoran's commitment to American art. Led by Bechhoefer Curator of American Art Sarah Cash, the reinstallation is devoted to how the ideas of place and American artistic identity have shifted over time through increased communication and connectedness. The galleries are installed in a variety of styles to evoke the time in which the works were created. Two galleries feature a "Salon-style" hang, with works presented from eye-level up to the ceiling as exhibitions often were designed in the 19th century. The reinstalled galleries are divided into four sections: "Pride of Place: The New Nation," "The Lure of Paris," "New York in the New Century," and "Beyond Borders."
American Journeys—Visions of Place is made possible through the generous support of the Women’s Committee of the Corcoran.
Major support for the conservation of Rembrandt Peale’s Washington before Yorktown was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the MARPAT Foundation, the Stockman Family Foundation, and the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation. Additional support for the conservation was also provided by the Women’s Committee of the Corcoran and the generous donors to the 2012 Annual Appeal.
