Rural western Massachusetts may seem an unlikely location for major collections of fine art, but it is home to a group of superb museums, including the Williams College Museum of Art, the Sterling and Francine Clark Institute, and the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art. Another of these museums, that of Smith College in Northampton, is currently renovating their facility. Like the Barnes, the Phillips, and the Smithsonian museums before them, they are using the occasion to send their art collection on the road. Seattle is the last stop on a national tour of their 19th and early 20th century paintings.. The show titled, Corot to Picasso, has just opened at SAM. Here with our review is KUOW art critic, Gary Faigin.
