Exhibition Overview

This selection of about twenty-five drawings and paintings from the Museum's collection—including works by American artists William Glackens, Ernest Lawson, George Luks, Everett Shinn, and John Sloan (all members of the Eight), and their contemporaries—candidly records the face of the city as well as the recreational and work activities that occupied city dwellers of different classes during the early twentieth century.
