Snowiss Galleries of American Art

The Benjamin and Lillian K. Snowiss Galleries feature American painting and sculpture from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century. Displayed in three galleries, this core collection of the Palmer Museum’s holdings surveys the major artistic developments in the United States, especially portraiture from the Early Republic, Hudson River School landscapes, genre painting before and after the Civil War, and various cosmopolitan styles of the Gilded Age.

Currently on view in the Snowiss Gallery, you can view a rare and new acquisition for the museum, Grafton Tyler Brown's Hot Springs at Yellowstone. Read about the important artwork here.
