Throughout the history of art, artists have turned to the observed world as a source of inspiration. This exhibition, drawn entirely from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, explores the various realist movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, beginning with the Barbizon movement in mid-19th century France and the concurrent Hudson River School in America, and progressing through later 19th-century realism and 20th-century realist movements, such as the Ashcan School, American Scene painting, Magic Realism, Photorealism, and East End (Long Island) realism. Figure painting, portraiture, landscape and still life painting by Jean-Desire-Gustave Courbet, Eugene Boudin, Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Eakins, Thomas Anshutz, John Sloan, Raphael Soyer, Leon Kroll, Fairfield Porter, and Don Eddy, among others, are included.
