American Beauty: Highlights from the Richard M. Scaife Bequest

Featuring 50 of the finest works from the bequest of Mr. Scaife. This exhibition presents a fascinating overview of the evolution of American art in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

American Beauty: Highlights from the Richard M. Scaife Bequest features the finest works from the bequest of Mr. Scaife. A long-time trustee of the Brandywine—as well as a newspaper publisher, art collector and philanthropist—Scaife left a major part of his extensive art collection to both the Brandywine River Museum of Art and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art following his death in 2014. Both Brandywine and Westmoreland gained masterworks of American art that will be viewed together for the first time in this exhibition, which features 50 paintings—a top selection of 25 from each museum’s holdings—celebrating Scaife’s passion for the rich traditions of American art. Together, these paintings present a fascinating overview of the evolution of American art in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
