Watercolor Masterpieces from the Brooklyn Museum
The recently opened exhibition features 70 stellar watercolors painting artwork from the Brooklyn Museum’s collection, chronicling the rise of the medium in America and shifts in technique over the years. The Brooklyn Museum was the first American art museum to start collecting watercolors,
so it only makes sense that all of the greats are included, and several works from some—Eakins, Sargent, Hassam, Prendergast, Marin, Marsh (and, naturally, Homer and Hopper). Going through the exhibition, you're able to see these artists progressively finding and tuning their creative voices.
