On view through January 25, 2009, the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery exhibits 22 pastels by American landscape painter Dwight William Tryon (1849–1925) alongside six black and white photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto (Season 3) from his series “Seascapes.”

Seascapes: Tryon & Sugimoto is the first exhibition since the Freer Gallery of Art opened in 1923 that presents works from its American collection with works from outside the museum walls with works from the collection of the adjoining Sackler Gallery. According to the press release, “Although the works are separated by history and medium, they are linked by a common subject—the sea—and by formal resonances that encourage leisurely contemplation and quiet comparison.”
