Museum: Arthur M. Sackler Gallery
Location: Sublevel 1
For the first time since the opening of the Freer Gallery of Art in 1923, works from its American collection are shown with works from outside the museum. A series of 22 pastels of the Maine coast -- of which 19 are known collectively as Sea Moods (1915-1916) -- by American landscape painter Dwight Tryon (1849-1925) are juxtaposed with six black-and-white photographs from the ongoing series Seascapes by contemporary Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. Although the works are separated by history and art medium, they are linked by a common subject -- the sea.
