The Coast & the Sea:
Marine and Maritime Art in America
Organized by the New-York Historical Society, this exhibit features major marine paintings and maritime artifacts from the museum’s holdings. A reflection of the fact that the early history and culture of the United States are closely bound to the Atlantic Ocean and the eastern seaboard of North America, this exhibition includes over 50 paintings from 1750 to 1904, a selection of decorative arts with maritime themes, and artifacts and tools. It offers audiences a rich trove of maritime works set in a meaningful historical and cultural narrative.
