This Must Be the Place: The Art of Landscape

Nov 2016 - Sep 2018

Now on view in the Founders Gallery, This Must Be the Place: The Art of Landscape presents works drawn from the collection of MSV benefactor Julian Wood Glass Jr. (1910–1992). The exhibition focuses on the real and imagined places that have captured the attention and imagination of artists, travelers, and viewers over the course of three centuries. The exhibition includes images of Italy, seascapes, scenes of France, paintings and drawings of sites in the United Kingdom, and paintings of the Americas. Made possible by support from the MSV Compass Society, This Must Be the Place includes works by such distinguished artists as Francesco Guardi, Thomas Gainsborough, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, John Frederick Kensett, and Jasper Francis Cropsey.

This Must Be the Place is made possible in part by the extraordinary support of the Compass Society.
