Open House and Reception for "Maurice Prendergast: By the Sea"A festive reception to celebrate the opening of "Maurice Prendergast: By the Sea." This first retrospective of Maurice Prendergast's work in twenty-three years follows the artist's most important subject-seaside harbors, beaches, resorts, and villages-through the major changes in style and historical context of the early twentieth century, thus illuminating Prendergast's originality within the broader development of modern American art and culture.
