Organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art with funds from a Lilly Endowment Inc. Grant, this exhibition provides an opportunity to see important works by J. Ottis Adams, William Forsyth and T.C. Steele.


Unlike many American artists who studied in Europe and then abandoned their hometowns for New York City, Adams, Forsyth and Steele returned to Indiana from their training at the Royal Academy in Munich to focus on the Hoosier landscape.

The exhibit presents both early works in a darker palate, focusing on the customs and pastimes of the German people, and later works of the 1890s, in which they had all adopted an Impressionist style and American scenes which were brighter and filled with texture.
