On Exhibit at the Moran Studio

The Gilded Age of American Etching:
Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran
and Their Contemporaries
—–
America’s Gilded Age (1870–1900) was born of the rapid industrial growth that caused the country’s economy to surge. This wealth was concentrated on the Northeast and Western coasts where those who benefitted from their corporations and investments built grand homes, toured the wonders of the world, and began to form art collections. Though Europe’s historic architecture mainly influenced the design of their mansions, a community of native-born and immigrant American artists found their support. The Nationalism that followed the Civil War, produced a market for American art, including landscapes, portraits and genre scenes painted on this side of the ocean.
—–
This exhibition focuses on a selection of masterpieces created during the Etching Revival by over a dozen of the American artists who played a major role in its success. Also included are etchings by the Moran family as well as some of their original etching plates. There is a section that is devoted to the etching process, complete with some rare original sketches made by Thomas Moran as preliminary designs for several of his most famous East Hampton prints. Along with an 1870’s etching press, this exhibit will include a video of an artist going through all the stages of making an etching.
