Galleries

The Southern Landscape
The Southern Landscape represents the geography of the South, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Potomac and Ohio Rivers and from the Atlantic Coast to eastern Texas. The gallery also includes a very broad range of painting styles that span more than one hundred years. Most importantly, however, this gallery captures the extraordinary range of cultural landscapes in the South. Britain provided the basic cultural stamp, but the influences of native peoples, of the French, Spanish, Irish, and German settlers, and of African Americans are clear. The cultural landscapes of the South continue to evolve, and the paintings displayed here reflect the times in which they were created.
