Faces of a New Nation

WINTERTHUR, DE.- Winterthur Museum & Country Estate will be the exclusive venue of a significant new exhibition, Faces of a New Nation: American Portraits of the 18th and Early 19th Centuries from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which opens on July 25th, 2009.

They range from those created by the first immigrant limners at work on these shores to those of highly professionalized artists who undertook commissions in the country's major cities just before the Civil War.
View masterpieces portraying the men, women, and children of early America. These stunning paintings depict not only people from a particular time and place, but they also reveal the values of the nation across a span of nearly 150 years.
Winterthur is the only venue for this select group of portraits from The Met, which represents many of the young country’s great artists, including John Smibert, John Singleton Copley, Gilbert Stuart, and Samuel F. B. Morse.
July 25, 2009 - January 24, 2010
