Museum: Sackler Gallery
Location: 1st Level, Vever Galleries
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.
