American Encounters: Genre Painting and Everyday Life


Genre painting flourished in the United States during the mid-nineteenth century. These narrative scenes depicting the everyday activities of “stock” or “typed” characters captivated American audiences. Genre paintings helped to express a distinctly “American” character, often through the exploration of racial, regional, or class differences. This exhibition of five paintings includes works by George Caleb Bingham, Eastman Johnson, and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait — American painters whose works illustrate three very different cultural experiences within the greater context of the United State.
