For this iteration of Sheldon Treasures, we highlight the museum’s extensive holdings of American landscape paintings. Hung chronologically from 1826 to 2008, this selection of works shows a gradual transformation in depictions of the outdoors as artists moved from the studio to plein air and began to reconsider their approaches to landscape through form, color, and perspective.
