Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art: Inside, 1

It's a month later, at least, and the passage of time will diminish my post on Crystal Bridges. Perhaps I'll come back later and edit-in some more material. The museum's collection is already noteworthy, and it is only in its infancy. With the financial backing it has received, one can hope for much more. Our tour began with a special exhibition on dance in American painting and then proceeded to the more general collection.
George Caleb Bingham, The Jolly Flatboatmen, 1846

William Holbrook Beard, The Bear Dance, 1870; an old
favorite of ours, a banner of which hung over our house in
Montana; the bears liked it

John Singer Sargent, Capri Girls Dancing on the Roof
Mary Cassatt, Bacchante, 1872
Arthur Frank Matthews, Youth, 1917
Robert Henri, Salome Dancer
Frank Myers, The Charleston, 1926
Thomas Hart Benton, Burlesque, 1930
Everett Shinn, The Green Ballet, 1943
Anne Estelle Rice, The Egyptian Dancers, 1910
