The Bruce in Greenwich has a permanent collection called Canvas and Cast, a mixture of American and European painting and sculpture. The 37 paintings include the portrait shown above “Young Girl” (1900) by William Merritt Chase and the pair of paintings called “Hudson River Landscape” (Day and Evening–no date given) by Walter McEwen. The one shown is Day. The 6 sculptures include “Nathan Hale” (1890), a small bronze by Frederick William MacMonnies, who also created the life-size statue of the same Connecticut revolutionary war hero for NYC City Hall Park, and “The Kiss” (1886) by Auguste Rodin, another bronze (but larger) conceived in Rodin’s famous workshop in Paris.
