“These exhibitions represent a welcome convergence of interest in the visual arts of the United States in London and the ongoing partnerships we’ve forged with some of the United Kingdom’s most respected institutions to present American art to international audiences,” explained Elizabeth Glassman, President and CEO of the Terra Foundation.

Dr. Nicholas Penny, director of the National Gallery, commented, “Collaboration with the Terra Foundation for American Art has enabled the National Gallery to introduce great American painters—notably George Bellows and the Ashcan School, and now also Fredric Church—to a British public. Exhibiting these painters in the National Gallery also enables those who are familiar with their art to see it in a different light.”

Moreover, since 2009 the Foundation has awarded postdoctoral teaching fellowships and visiting professorships at London’s Courtauld Institute of Art, supporting advanced inquiry in American art history.

The Terra Foundation has also funded conferences and symposia at University College London, University of Nottingham, and University of York, as well as supported a survey of American Art in British public collections as part of the National Inventory Research Project at the University of Glasgow. – www.terraamericanart.org
