Syracuse, Museum of Fine Arts
Syracuse, may well be proud of its fine collection of representative paintings of American art, now a permanent possession of the museum. Simplicity, the prevailing note in the landscapes of Charles H. Davis (1856) in the museum, could well be taken as the keynote of the whole collection.
Rochester, Memorial Art Gallery
Rochester is fortunate in possessing one of George Inness, Jr.'s finest paintings of cattle, Bringing Home the Cows. In this picture we feel his inherent love of evening when moist clouds hang low and a soft radiance fills the air.
Buffalo, N.Y., Albright Art Gallery
The collectors of the Albright Art Gallery, with the seer's insight, have selected for their American art section splendid canvases of these leaders. That George Inness leads the van is not surprising.
Toledo, Museum of Art
The Toledo Museum of Art has a collection of nearly sixty paintings by American artists. A collection, too, that embraces some of the representative pictures in American art.
Detroit Museum of Art
The Detroit Museum of Art, with its representative collection of works of the masters from various countries of Europe, may well be the pride of the city of Detroit. These paintings were gathered while the old master craze in America was in its infancy.
Muskegon, Michigan, The Gallery of Fine Arts in the Hackley Public Library
Of the smaller art museums in America perhaps none is more worthy of special mention than the Hackley Gallery at Muskegon. Its fifty-four oil paintings in the permanent collection from English, French, Dutch, Spanish, and American art are a key-stone for further additions that no future critics or unpublished information can displace.
Chicago, The Art Institute - Dutch, Flemish and Spanish
The Art Institute of Chicago at the present writing is the most popular gallery in America, if the number of yearly visitors is the test of popularity.
Chicago, The Art Institute - American and French
One of the finest, if not the finest collection of paintings by George Inness in America is in the Art Institute of Chicago.
Milwaukee, Layton Art Gallery
When Mr. Frederick Layton and his wife gave the now famous Layton Gallery to the City of Milwaukee in 1888, they bestowed a gift that in intellectual value is compounding interest to each succeeding generation.
Minneapolis, Institute of Art
The Minneapolis Institute of Art has perhaps one of the newest galleries in our country and one laid on an extensive scale. The building, which had its inaugural exhibition in January and February, 1915, is but the first unit or about one-seventh of the entire plan.
Indianapolis, John Herron Art Institute
Indiana is particularly fortunate in having a portrait of her most distinguished literary son in her capital, and painted by America's most famous portrait painter, John Singer Sargent.
Cincinnati, Museum
The latest acquisition to the Cincinnati Museum, and perhaps the most important painting of all its possessions, is the Portrait of Philip the Second, by Titian.
New Orleans, Delgado Museum of Art
In the smaller galleries we find that most of the originals are by less known artists of today, but the character of the works selected is of a high order. This is specially true of the permanent collection in the Isaac Delgado Museum of Art, New Orleans.
Fort Worth, Texas, Carnegie Public Library
The state of Texas is to be congratulated that the Carnegie Library at Fort Worth has one of Gilbert Stuart's splendid portraits, with a perfectly authenticated history.
St. Louis, City Art Museum
The City Art Museum of St. Louis has an interesting and varied collection of paintings. There are pictures by many of the nineteenth century artists from most of the countries of Europe, and a goodly number representing American painters.
California-Sacramento, E.B. Crocker Art Gallery
Thirty years ago the city of Sacramento received from Mrs. Margaret E. Crocker a gift of inestimable value, in the E. B. Crocker Gallery. The building was erected ten years before by Mr. and Mrs. Crocker to contain the rare treasures they were collecting in their travels through Europe.
California - San Francisco Institute of Art - Emanuel Walter Collection
As we study the Emanuel Walter Collection we are impressed with the comprehensive selection of paintings representing the Barbizon artists.
