The Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston SC

The Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina houses an eclectic collection of 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Century American art. To be fair, they've got it much more chronologically organized in there than I've opted to do in this post. But personally I'm a fan of the jumps and juxtapositions such a wide-ranging collection provides. Much of the best stuff, imho, were the portraits & the landscapes of Charleston and its environs.
