Eye to Eye: A New Look at the Dixon Collection considers our permanent collection through the themes that inform its subject matter. This exhibition highlights some of the major ideas that influenced art produced in Europe and the United States from the eighteenth through the early twentieth century. Artists returned again and again to timeless subjects that continue to inspire us to this day, including scenes of modern entertainment, views of the landscape in all its variety, and images of contemporary men, women, and children. The artists who created the works that addressed these themes employed many techniques, but they all stressed a sense of immediacy and a willingness to explore new approaches to art-making.
