This exhibition displayed artwork from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that presented three different contexts for viewing landscapes. Reframing Perceptions of Landscapes expanded audiences’ expectations beyond the traditional interpretations of nature, encouraging the viewer to see how landscape can be abstract or imaginary, ugly or beautiful. European and American Landscapes: 1800–1930 presented prints, drawings, and paintings arranged as if in a studio or academy exhibition of the Victorian or Edwardian era. American Impressionist works were on display, together with works by such artists as Albert Bierstadt, James Mcneil Whistler and Charles Demuth. East Asian Landscapes: 1800-1950 showed works created by artists in China, Japan, or Korea during the same period, using different formats, such as hand scrolls, folding screens, and kimonos.
