From Homer to Hopper: American Watercolor Masterworks from the Currier Museum of Art
Organized by the Currier Museum of Art
March 6, 2010 - June 7, 2010 (11:30-12:30)

This exhibition features extraordinary works by such nationally known masters as Winslow Homer, Maurice Prendergast, Childe Hassam, Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, Charles Burchfield, John Marin, Charles Sheeler, Stuart Davis, and Andrew Wyeth.

Drawn from the impressive collection the Currier has built over its 80-year history, these watercolors have not been exhibited as a group for two decades because of the fragile nature of the medium. The exhibition includes about seventy five works that trace the history of watercolor over the last 175 years. A strong representation of work by important New Hampshire artists ranges from portraits by nineteenth-century itinerant painter Joseph H. Davis to landscapes by New Hampshire Living Treasure award winner John Hatch and abstract compositions by contemporary painter and sculptor Varujan Boghosian.
