"An overview of the stunning array of treasures reveals representation of many of the important advancements in the history of American art. Outstanding masterworks include a marsh scene by Martin Johnson Heade, a portrait of her sister at a loom by Mary Cassatt, the famous study for an outdoor portrait of the Vickers children by John Singer Sargent, a Newport harbor scene by Childe Hassam, and William Zorach's Spirit of the Dance, a sculpture that was initially conceived for Radio City Music Hall. The earliest piece of American art is an historical work by Benjamin West painted in 1796. Later pieces represent naive art by many of the well-known painters, as well as a significant group of Tonalist works.
