Masterpieces of the Valley

February 10 – May 27, 2018

Masterpieces of the Valley features exceptional European and American paintings dating from the mid-nineteenth through early twentieth centuries, the period in which Mr. and Mrs. Paine focused their collecting efforts. The dramatic “Salon-style” installation in the Main Gallery shows how art exhibitions may have been installed and experienced during that time period.

Drawn from the collections of the Paine, the Oshkosh Public Museum, the Oshkosh Public Library, Lawrence University, and other regional institutions, highlights include masterpieces by Jules Breton, Léon Augustin Lhermitte, William-Adolphe Bouguereau, George Inness, and Winslow Homer.
