How is color an artistic tool, and how much do arrangements of colors draw us to certain works of art: How do paintings affect how we see the world – how do they color our vision? This exhibition will examine the working methods and the impact of color choices in compositions by Childe Hassam, Joseph De Camp, Willard Leroy Metcalf, George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove and other nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century paintings from the Farnsworth Collection.
