Overview


One Hundred Stories celebrates one hundred paintings, sculptures, works on paper and decorative arts in the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts (WCMFA), Hagerstown, Maryland. Founded in 1931 by Anna Brugh Singer and William Henry Singer, Jr., the collection now includes over 6,000 objects, ranging from Old Master paintings to 20th-century art, with a particular emphasis on American art from the last two centuries.

Among the artworks presented are examples by leading American 18th- and 19th-century artists, including William Merritt Chase, Thomas Cole, Robert Henri and Joshua Johnson. 20th-century art is represented in works by Milton Avery, Philip Guston, Norman Rockwell, Frank Stella and a host of regional artists. The volume also features wonderful examples of decorative art, including a silver tea service by Christopher Dresser, earthenware by George Ohr, and fine examples of French Moderne art, and Art Deco glass.

Two essays cover the history of the Museum, and the wider role of museums in the United States
