    Williams College Museum of Art

    The Anxiety of Influence: European and American Art, 1689-1913
    Bracketed by the earliest war for control of North American and World War I, The Anxiety of Influence highlights seldom-seen treasures from WCMA's collection and illuminates the political, economic, and cultural tensions of the times. Works from Britain, France, Holland, Italy, and Spain are juxtaposed with those created in the Americas. Complex relationships--harmonious and contentious--mark the artistic exchange between Europe and America.

About The Area

Nicknamed the Bay State, Massachusetts is renowned for its beaches in the summer months, ski hills in the winter and classic New England charm year around. It's steeped in colonial American history, from the city of Salem, where the famed witch trials took place, to Plymouth, where the first pilgrims entered the New World.

Massachusetts isn't all schoolroom history, although many would like you to think it is with its abundance of universities and prep schools. This state boasts a lot of diversity, making it a center for all kinds of varied cultural experiences. From small, storybook towns to the Boston metropolis, Massachusetts should be on the top of your travel list.
