Explore the art of this new exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Venice became a center of artistic experimentation for American artists in the late 1800s. John Singer Sargent, James McNeill Whistler, and many others became enamored with Murano glass and infused their art with references to it. This presentation presents glass vessels in conversation with paintings, watercolors, and prints by American artists, and also examines the impact of Italian glass on American literature, design theory, and science education, as well as ideas at the time about gender, labor, and class relations.
