What it Meant to be Modern, 1910–1965: American Works on Paper from the Karen and Kevin Kennedy Collection brings together the visionary work of Oscar Bluemner, Charles Burchfield, Stuart Davis, John Marin, and Charles Sheeler.

About

The 18 works on paper all share the magic of the modernist movement of the first half of the twentieth century.

Where some of the images flirt with abstraction, as seen in Charles Sheeler and John Marin, others experiment with a pulsing sense of nature endowed with an incredible lightness of being, as does Charles Burchfield. Oscar Bluemner’s pieces glow with mystery and intense color while Stuart Davis gives us a powerful view of the landscape with the shifting planes of perspective. These five artists were chosen for the diversity of their art at a time when a new way of exploring an image reflected a unique and exciting vision of the world around us.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog, which will be available in The Shops and online.
