Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum Presents Copley to Warhol

The Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum presents Copley to Warhol, an exhibition on view through September 17, 2011.

Consisting of 30 of the finest American paintings in NOMA’s collection, Copley to Warhol briefly surveys the development of American painting, beginning with portraits by Colonial masters John Singleton Copley and Charles Willson Peale and turning to the rise of the landscape tradition with Asher B. Durand, George Inness, and Louisiana artists Richard Clague and Joseph R. Meeker.

The exhibition then showcases nineteenth-century artists who pursued their careers in Europe, such as John Singer Sargent and Mary Cassatt; moves into the twentieth century with early modernists including Marsden Hartley and Georgia O’Keeffe; and concludes with the triumph of American painting following World War II with abstract expressionism and Pop Art.
