Exhibition Overview

An exhibition featuring the Museum's collection of masterful watercolors by American modernist Charles Demuth (1883–1935). Ranging in date from 1914 to 1929, the works illustrate the artist's two signature styles applied to his best-known subjects: floral arrangements, delicately drawn and tinted; and architectural sites rendered with hard-edged precisionism. Of particular note is his lively Bermuda series (1917) picturing exotic fish, tropical landscapes, and sailboats.
