The end of the day: American painting of 1900
«End of the day"- an exhibition of portrait and landscape paintings by American artists, created mainly in the northeastern United States in the late XIX and early XX century. The works presented at the exhibition span the fifty-year period between the Civil War and the First World War, a time of profound social, economic and political changes marked by rapid industrialization, urbanization and the growth of America as an international superpower.

Against this background, the images reflect feelings that fluctuate between the embrace of progress and a feeling of nostalgia for what was perceived as a simpler, gone American era, rooted in rural traditions, many expressing an ambivalent attitude to the complexities of modern life.
