See Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection before it opens to the public.

The Portland Art Museum is pleased to present a major exhibition exploring the evolution of European and American landscape painting. Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection features 39 paintings from five centuries of masterpieces drawn from the collection of Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul G. Allen.

Co-organized by the Portland Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Paul G. Allen Family Collection, the exhibition presents masterpieces spanning nearly four hundred years, from Jan Brueghel the Younger’s series devoted to the five senses to Canaletto’s celebrated views of Venice to landscapes by innovators ranging from Joseph Mallord William Turner, Paul Cézanne, and Gustav Klimt to David Hockney and Gerhard Richter. Paintings by Thomas Moran, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, Thomas Hart Benton, and others provide an American perspective on landscapes at home and abroad. Seeing Nature includes five Impressionist canvases painted in France, London, and Venice by the French master Claude Monet.
