Starting on March 3rd , there’ll be a new show, titled Americani a Firenze or Americans in Florence, at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. It’ll run until July 15th but, as you’d know if you read our other post about visiting Florence, it will almost certainly be extended.
As Prof. Adrian Hoch put it: “It’s pretty, it’s glamorous, and it’s when America became rich; it’s the beginning. It’s all about Henry James and the grand tour [of Europe].”
The painters featured will be many, including: Winslow Homer, William Morris Hunt, John La Farge, Thomas Eakins, John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and many, many others.
You can find the official posting for the show on the Palazzo Strozzi website.
