John White Alexander, A Ray of Sunlight (The Cellist) (Le Rayon du Soleil), 1898, Oil on canvas, Collection of Ann and Gordon Getty
The first exhibition to examine "painting softly," a distinctive approach to painting exemplified in works by James McNeill Whistler and George Inness, Like Breath on Glass traces a quieter approach to painting that evolved around the turn of the twentieth century. Only at the Clark this summer, 40 beautiful paintings by Whistler, Inness, William Merritt Chase, John Twachtman, Eduard Steichen, and others will reward an unhurried exploration of works by these great American artists.
