We have revived our survey of art from the 20th century to the present with a newly conceived two-part exhibition. Throughout late summer and the fall, a group of works from the permanent collection will demonstrate some important concerns about aesthetics and content by artists working in the first half of the 20th century, including social realism, abstract expressionism, and geometric abstraction. The exhibition will include some recent acquisitions and works not often shown that will demonstrate some of the many shifts in direction that art took between 1900 and 1960.

Our famous Woman painting by Willem de Kooning will be joined by other paintings, watercolors, and drawings from artists such as Alexander Calder, Konrad Cramer (with a newly restored Cubist-influenced work), Elaine de Kooning, Gifford Beal, Jay de Feo, Arshile Gorky, Alfred Maurer, and more.
