To give some of its watercolors a rest from gallery lighting, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has replaced them with new works, all but one from the late 19th century and none previously announced as being part of the collection.

Installed are a 13 1/2 x 9 3/4 in. watercolor of people on a beach by post-impressionist Maurice Prendergast (above), painted circa 1896-1897; a 16 3/8 x 23 3/4 in. bronze by Augustus Saint Gaudens of Gertrude Vanderbilt at the age of 7 (below), 1882; a 30 x 25 in. painting by James Earl, "Lady Mary Beauclerk, Daughter of Lord Aubrey and Lady Jane Beauclerk (1793-1794)"; a figurative watercolor by Arthur Bowen Davies (1895) and watercolor landscapes by George Inness, John La Farge and George Henry Smillie, all created between 1880 and 1900.
