Oil paintings, watercolors and prints dating from the 1850s to the 1930s capture the ecological, sociological and visual diversity of the Grand Canyon, while showcasing a range of artistic styles such as naturalism, impressionism, and abstraction. Thomas Moran, Eanger Irving Couse, Gustave Baumann and Gunnar Widforss are among the celebrated artists included in this exhibition.
