With over 70 paintings and works on paper, this exhibition demonstrates how neo-impressionists like Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Théo van Rysselberghe employed stylization and a deliberate orchestration of color to create landscapes and figures that went far beyond observed nature.

William Glackens and the Illustration of Modern Life

In 1898 William Glackens burst onto the scene as a magazine illustrator, winning commissions and acclaim for his images of modern American life. Glackens became a go-to illustrator for tales of contemporary New York, a popular topic in the burgeoning periodical press at the turn of the century. His years as a newspaper artist had trained him well for this subject matter, which corresponded to his interests as a painter. Glackens would remain a prolific and successful illustrator for a decade, and this talk situates his accomplishments and his approach within the broader field of American illustration.
