Description: This rotating exhibition of highlights from the Permanent Collection features a broad range of works by American and European artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Of particular interest is �tienne Berne-Bellecour?s monumental "Embarkation Maneuver," 1882, which factually depicts the departure of a regiment of cuirassiers following the Franco-Prussian War, in contrast to the acerbic commentary on the Weimar Republic seen in George Grosz?s equally monumental "Eclipse of the Sun," 1926.
