American Paintings from the Weyerhaeuser Collection

September 12, 2024 - January 5, 2025

September 22, 2024 – January 12, 2025
Reception: November 10, 2024, 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Collecting American paintings was an adventure in art appreciation for the Weyerhaeuser family. Interest in American paintings was fostered by museum co-founders Carl and Edith Weyerhaeuser and went back several generations. The collection came to encompass canvases from important phases in American landscape painting as well as other genres.

Among the holdings are works by Hudson River School painters: Albert Bierstadt and Jasper Francis Cropsey; American Impressionists: Childe Hassam, Dennis Miller Bunker, and John Singer Sargent, as well as paintings by George Bellows, a devoted member of the Ashcan School who helped to organize the 1913 Armory Show. Also included are works from other American artists: Eric Aho, Charles Burchfield, Elisabeth Weber-Fulop (Duxbury), Clarence Gihon, William Sargent Kendall, George Nick, Paul Sample and more.

Shown: Paul Sample, (American, 1896-1974), The Wide Valley, 1960s, oil
