Add to Calendar 27-09-2013 09-03-2014 15 Beauty's Legacy: Gilded Age Portraits in America Beauty's Legacy: Gilded Age Portraits in America examines the remarkable critical and popular resurgence of portraiture in the United States during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century. The exhibition -- presenting over sixty works of art as well as period photographs and graphic materials, all from the New-York Historical Society -- will investigate the strong cultural and social legacy of the American portrait tradition, with particular emphasis upon the New York sitters so well represented in New-York Historical's rich collection. With the amassing of great fortunes founded on industrial expansion, came the impetus to document the appearance of those who propelled and benefited from burgeoning wealth, thus echoing a cultural pattern reaching back to the colonial era. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=127143 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
