Jump Right In: Waterways in American Art, 1850-1980

Lincoln Glenn Gallery is excited to announce Jump Right In: Waterways in American Art, 1850-1980. The exhibition will be on view at Lincoln Glenn’s Westchester gallery at 126 Larchmont Avenue from June 23rd through August 31st.

Throughout history, American waterways have been utilized for trade, leisure, sport, and human migration. From the earliest painting in the exhibition by Julius Montalant depicting a United States Navy ship in Rio de Janeiro through Emilio Sanchez’s summery vista from 1980, American artists at home and abroad dazzled with their portrayal of beaches, canals, seascapes, and lakes.

Spurred by commissions by railway companies, both Charles Warren Eaton and John Fery produced canvases advertising the beauties of the American West. Looking the opposite direction, 20th century female artists Jane Peterson and Pauline Palmer headed to Europe for better educational opportunities, where they discovered the marvels of Venetian canals and architecture. Yet other artists, such as John Marin and Gerrit Beneker were more than content to paint their coastal New England surroundings of Maine and Cape Cod, respectively. The trio of harbor views by Emile Gruppe, Antonio Jacobsen, and Thomas Anshutz display the great degree of commerce occurring in East Coast ports as well as the Great Lakes. Gritty New York scenes by Cecil Bell on the Staten Island Ferry and a Depression-era playground scene on the East River’s banks by George Picken are offset by works executed by Sanford Robinson Gifford and Chiura Obata on fishing excursions.

This survey highlights the contributions of female and minority artists in the United States. The inclusion of works by Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, Jane Peterson, Pauline Palmer, Marie Medora E. Ross, Georgina Klitgaard, Sally Michel Avery, Edward Bannister, Chiura Obata, and Emilio Sanchez demonstrates the diverse cornucopia of our nation’s population.
