Works by Hassam, Kuehne, Edwards, Peixotto, Robinson, Peets, and Petrovic are presented in conjunction with a suite of recent watercolor paintings by contemporary artist Timothy J. Clark.

About the Hispanic Society Museum and Library
The Hispanic Society of America was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) with the object of establishing a free, public museum and reference library for the study of the art and culture of Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines. HSM&L houses a vast collection of paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs, as well as sculpture and decorative objects dating from the first millennium BCE to the 20th century. As HSM&L continues comprehensive renovation of the Museum's Main Building, it has maintained public and educational programs both on virtual platforms and in person, including concerts, public lectures, and temporary exhibitions. They have also reactivated the outdoor space with exhibitions and public programs on Audubon Terrace in partnership with several local artists and community arts organizations.
