American Perspectives, is our newly reinstalled permanent collection of American Art. With paintings, sculpture, furniture, and decorative arts from the 18th through the 20th century, the renovated galleries offer a fresh approach to new and familiar treasures. American Perspectives presents American art through an often regional lens, using chronology and thematic groupings to celebrate the strengths of the collection, which include 18th century furniture, New London’s maritime and whaling history, Hudson River School paintings, and Connecticut Impressionism, along with modern and contemporary art.
