Windows depicted in art serve various practical and metaphorical functions. Whether casting light that illuminates a scene or providing formal structure to a composition, windows signify a boundary between private and public spaces. Allowing, or preventing, the viewer visual access, windows mediate between interior and exterior, providing connections or maintaining separation. Drawn from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, Looking Out, Looking In explores windows in paintings and photographs of the 19th and 20th centuries by artists such as Berenice Abbott, Don Eddy, Fairfield Porter, Emilio Sanchez, John Sloan, and Helen Miranda Wilson, and others.
