    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

Known as 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.

From the Boston metropolis to the sleepy New England towns, there’s many fun things to do in Massachusetts. Kids and adults alike will have a blast at the Edaville Family Theme Park in Carver, or visiting the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield.

Whether in Boston or on Cape Cod, Massachusetts is famous for its seafood. Head to the No Name Restaurant for a succulent lobster dinner, or the Sailing Cow Café for award-winning clam chowder. For stunning foliage, be sure to visit during the autumn months and watch the trees turn vibrant shades of gold, red, and orange.
