For anyone curious about the history of the visual arts in Milwaukee, the current 125th Anniversary Celebration at the Milwaukee Art Museum affords visitors the opportunity to explore this issue. At the center of the festivities in Gallery 10 is an exhibition of works from the Frederick Layton Collection. The exhibition is hung in salon style, as in their original home, and contains a selection of some 55 European and American paintings by major and minor painters of the late 19th century. American paintings include Eastman Johnson’s signature work The Old Stage Coach (1871), Winslow Homer’s Hark the Lark (1882) and Asher Durand’s In the Catskills (1857). English works represented in the exhibition include Frederic Leighton’s At the Fountain (1892-92) and Edward William Cooke’s The Pilot Boat (1839).
