Nineteenth-Century Landscape Paintings from the Permanent Collection

The ZMA’s permanent collection includes wonderful landscape paintings by French artists Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863), Jules Dupré (1811–1889), and Jean Baptiste Camille Corot (1796–1875) and the English painter John Joseph Barker (1824–1904). The works on display in this small exhibition illustrate the profound transformation within this genre during the nineteenth century when the idealism of Classical landscapes was rejected in favor of the naturalism embodied in these artists’ contemporary environs.

Exploring America's Frontier

As the 19th century drew to a close, Americans became increasing fascinated with the Western frontier. This intimate exhibition explores how the closing frontier was depicted in paintings, prints, and on American Art Pottery.

This exhibition was held in conjunction with On the Same Page Muskingum.
