Coming September 28th - American Encounters: Anglo-American Portraiture in an Era of Revolution. This exhibit will be on display through January 18, 2015

The High Museum of Art, Musée du Louvre, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Terra Foundation for American Art will present this third installation in their four-year collaboration focusing on the history of American art. Opening at the Louvre on Feb. 1, 2014, this exhibition provides a close look at five portraits that demonstrate how portraiture style evolved in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as American and European painters were influenced by each other. The installation’s five works have never been displayed together previously. Following its presentation at the Louvre (Feb. 1–April 28, 2014), the installation will travel to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark. (May 17–Sept. 15,
2014), and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Ga. (Sept. 28, 2014–Jan. 18, 2015). The exhibition is part of a multi-year collaboration with the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Musée du Louvre, and the Terra Foundation for American Art. The exhibition is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company
