Join curator Elisa Germán for a closer look at a selection of artworks in the exhibition American Watercolors, 1880–1990: Into the Light, on view from May 20 to August 13, 2023. Germán will share insights about the museums’ collection of American watercolors from the mid- to late 20th century, focusing on a selection of drawings that reveal how this practice evolved into a new contemporary American medium.


American Watercolors, 1880–1990 presents more than a hundred compelling and rarely seen watercolors by both well-known and historically underrepresented American artists selected from the Harvard Art Museums’ deep and diverse holdings. Discover how watercolorists leveraged the imaginative and experimental capacity of the medium to create marvelously diverse works over more than a century.
