Collector's Choice: Highlights from the Permanent Collection
(August 19, 2016 – Ongoing)

Collector's Choice: Highlights from the Permanent Collection showcases a selection of paintings that characterize the highly individual tastes and historic contributions of several New York City collectors who shaped the New-York Historical Society’s holdings. Joining Picasso’s Le Tricorne ballet curtain, these treasures of New-York Historical include Thomas Cole's iconic "Course of Empire" series and Charles Willson Peale's Peale Family Portrait. Ranging in date from the 14th through the 21st centuries, these American and European works illuminate the collecting interests of Luman Reed, Thomas Jefferson Bryan, and Robert L. Stuart. Colonial portraits of children and marine and maritime subjects each occupy other walls of Dexter Hall, while an installation adjacent to Picasso's Le Tricorne showcases recently collected works from the 20th and 21st centuries.

 

The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems
(March 18, 2016 - September 25, 2016)

Since the publication of Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! in 2003, Willems has amassed an impressive list of New York Times best-selling adventures that have garnered him three Caldecott Honors, two Geisel Medals, five Geisel Honors, and an inaugural spot in the Picture Book Hall of Fame. The Art and Whimsy of Mo Willems exhibition brings together original art, sketches, and inspirational drawings from Willem's most popular series. The artist's ability to crisply weave together life lessons and humor creates artful volumes that speak to all, regardless of size.

 

The Battle of Brooklyn and the Fall of New York
(September 23, 2016 - January 08, 2017)

The first major armed campaign for the colonies after declaring independence from Great Britain, the Battle of Brooklyn stands as the largest single battle of the Revolutionary War, and one that would loom large in George Washington’s consciousness. Through 90 objects and documents, including Hugh Gaine’s printing of the Declaration of Independence, a camp bed used by George Washington during the war, Thomas Paine’s Common Sense, and a rare hunting shirt that became the first ‘uniform’ of the Continental Army, The Battle of Brooklyn and the Fall of New York will present the dramatic story of the near-disaster that both threatened and abetted the outcome of the war for American independence.
