American art has long been a mainstay of Dartmouth College's collections, beginning with a gift in 1773 of a Boston-made silver bowl from Royal Governor John Wentworth to Dartmouth's founder, Eleazar Wheelock, in honor of the College's first commencement. The largest selection of the American collections ever presented at the Hood, this exhibition showcases over 150 paintings, sculptures, pieces of silver, and other decorative arts to 1950. Artists represented include Paul Revere, John Singleton Copley, Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Doughty, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, Frederic Remington, Willard Metcalf, Maria Oakey Dewing, John Sloan, Augusta Savage, Paul Sample, Maxfield Parrish, and Georgia O'Keeffe. An illustrated catalogue copublished with the University Press of New England accompanies the exhibition.
