A quick trip to the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) Collection Highlights is perfect for this busy time of year. For example, the American art category includes 65 artworks dating from the late-eighteenth century to the late-twentieth century. Included are sculptures, a stained-glass window by John La Farge, and figurative and non-figurative paintings by a chronological range of artists, including John Singleton Copley, Georgia O'Keefe, and Mary Cassatt. Decorative Arts & Design provides images of furniture, tapestries, quilts, ceramics and metalwork, such as the Elevator Screen From the Chicago Stock Exchange by Louis Sullivan. Works in each category are displayed as pages of medium-size images that can be arranged by date or alphabetically by title. Clicking on the full display for any piece provides longer information about the item and whether it is currently on view at SAM.
