CAPTION ONLY: PICTURING AMERICAN LIFE, 1885-1915

A current exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art explores two turn-of-the-century movements in American painting. "American Impressionism and Realism: The Painting of Modern Life, 1885-1915" highlights 70 thematically arranged paintings by such artists as impressionists Mary Cassatt and William M. Chase ("At the Seaside," above) and American realists William Glackens and Robert Henri. The exhibit, which runs through May 14, is part of the museum's American Festival focusing on the painting, sculpture, furniture, prints and textiles from 17th-century America to the present.
