For the exhibition titled Whistler to Cassatt: American Painters in France, galleries at Denver Art Museum are densely adorned with dozens of luminous paintings by some of America’s most revered artists.

"One of my favorite sections is the big salon wall where you see masterworks by John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, William Merritt Chase, Henry Ossawa Tanner and many more flexing their muscles, as they would have done in the very competitive environment of the annual Paris Salon—the Miami Art Fair 150 years ago.” - Denver Art Museum Director Christoph Heinrich 

Following its presentation at DAM, the exhibition will travel to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in 2022, April 16 to July 31.
