“The paintings in the Rush Collections Gallery represent 400 years of the history of culture and painting. They also show evidence of the work of students apprenticed to famous artists, and to the working process of artists from the 15th century to the 19th century. Our students can see the evolution of both western culture and artistic techniques in these paintings.”
