Exhibition: The American West in Bronze, 1850–1925

This display of American bronzes will be the first full-scale exhibition to explore the complex aesthetic and cultural impulses behind the creation of the bronze statuettes of American western themes. The exhibition includes several representative examples by such iconic artists as Frederic Remington (1861–1909) and Charles Marion Russell (1864–1926), as well as explores the work of sculptors who infrequently pursued western subjects—for example, James Earle Fraser (1876–1953) and Paul Manship (1885–1966)—yet profoundly informed public appreciation of the western bronze statuette.

The exhibition will also travel to the Nanjing Museum (September 29, 2014–January 18, 2015).
