Amon Carter Museum Presents Views and Visions: Prints of the American West, 1820-1970





The Amon Carter Museum presents Views and Visions: Prints of the American West, 1820–1970. The exhibition, on view through January 10, 2010, showcases approximately 120 prints and illustrated books from the museum’s permanent collection. Admission is free.

American artists saw and experienced the western frontier in different ways and with varied perspectives. This exhibition features prints from the past two centuries, representing a myriad views and visions of the American West.

"While the works will be arranged by subjects familiar to the viewer—nature, wildlife, native peoples and non-native settlement—they will reflect broader aspects,"” says Rick Stewart, the Carter’s senior curator of western paintings and sculpture and curator of Views and Visions.

"One of the most interesting features in the exhibition will be the juxtaposition of particular works,"” Stewart continues, "sometimes made more than a century apart, that will show curious similarities or intriguing differences in artistic vision."..
