Fine art from American talents forms the core of the New Britain Museum of American Art's permanent collection, which includes 5,000 works in a variety of mediums, from photographs and illustrations to paintings and drawings. In addition to a strong showing by artists from the colonial period, including a number of portraits, find landscapes by Hudson River School notables like Albert Bietstadt and Fitz Hugh Lane, post-Civil War pieces by Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins (and others), as well as a selection of Impressionist works by Mary Cassatt and Childe Hassam. Those interested more in modern art won't go away disappointed either - there are a number of pieces exhibited here by well-known names from 20th-century movements, from Pop art to Photo-Realism.
