Mediterranea: American Art from the Graham D. Williford Collection

AUGUST 13 – DECEMBER 7, 2024

Coming soon to the Edmonds, Lawrence, and Fortune Galleries

The Williford Collection of American Art boasts seventy-two paintings depicting scenes from the Mediterranean. Throughout the 1800s, aristocratic young men from America traveled to Europe to journey through the ancient ruins of Greece, Rome, and Egypt, following the footsteps of their British predecessors who started the Grand Tour in the 1600s.
