Philadelphia Museum of Art, 'American Watercolour in the Age of Homer and Sargent', March 1 - May 14, 2017.

'This exhibition explores watercolor painting’s remarkable rise in the United States in the years between 1860 and 1925. From the passion of a small group of painters in the 1860s to the flowering of modernism in the early twentieth century, this survey charts the artistic revolution that occurred during the lifetimes of Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent, the two most influential American watercolorists.'
