Arising out of European traditions and exploring the establishment of a New World aesthetic, art works in this 3,200 sq. ft. gallery survey North and South American traditions — cultural bridges to art of the American Southwest. While drawn primarily from the Museum's permanent collection, Roderick Gallery
is also augmented by works on loan.
The Museum's Mexican Viceroyal collection consists of 17th through 19th century paintings on panel, canvas, copper, and tin, and includes works by Nicolás Enríquez, Antonío de Torres, Francisco Martínez, and Juan Sánchez Salmarón.
Its collection of works by early 19th and 20th century American masters includes George Inness, Rembrandt Peale, Gilbert Stuart and Thomas Sulley. Also on exhibition are selections from the Museum's strong holdings of work by American Impressionists, which include Edward Bannister, Frank Boggs, John Edward Costigan, Ernest Lawson, Henry O. Tanner, and John Twachtman.
