From Acknowledgments: "As the foremost practitioner of American genre painting, William Sidney Mount is an artist who had a profound impact on nineteenth-century American art and culture, and we are delighted to be presenting this first major examination of his work. Bringing together finished paintings, preparatory sketches, prints, and ephemera, the exhibition documents Mount's artistic accomplishments, as well as his role in the popular culture of his time. . .
