The land provided the master painters of European art with a vehicle to express both their personal emotional outlook and their wider vision of life. This exhibition features landscape paintings from the 17th to 19th centuries by major artists from the permanent collection of the Corcoran and will explore themes of idealism, romanticism, and realism. Works by Dutch masters Albert Cuyp, Jacob van Ruisdael, and Jan Van Goyen, British masters John Constable and J.M.W Turner, and French masters Eugene Boudin, Jean Baptiste Corot, and Claude Monet will be included with art by other significant European artists.
