Explore the current special exhibition

Meet at the special exhibition entrance for a guided of A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach. This is the first exhibition to investigate the integral relationships between modernism, classicism, and popular imagery in the interwar sculpture of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach. Assembled from public and private collections, this exhibition of approximately 55 sculptures and 20 drawings addresses the remarkable affinities between the work of four divergent and competitive personalities, who redefined sculpture's expressive potential during the turbulent interbellum period.
