Throughout the history of art, artists have turned to the observed world as a source of inspiration. This exhibition, drawn entirely from the Museum's Permanent Collection, explores the various realist moments of the 19th and 20th centuries, beginning with the mid 19th century Barbizon movement in France and the concurrent Hudson River School in America, and progressing through later 19th century realism and 20th-century movements, such as the Ashcan School, American Scene painting, Magic Realism, Photorealism, and East End realism.
