American Moderns on Paper: Masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art

February 27, 2010May 30, 2010

Savor the opportunity to view the finest watercolors, pastels, and drawings by leading avant-garde American artists of the early 20th century. This February, these rarely seen artworks, from America’s oldest public art museum, will travel to the Carter. Artists represented include Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Andrew Wyeth.

Complementing the Amon Carter Museum’s own modernist holdings, American Moderns on Paper: Masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art provides a groundbreaking new look at the varied directions pursued by modern American artists from 1910 to 1960. Capturing the restless, spontaneous, and confident American spirit, the exhibition examines progressive art movements such as Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Neo-Romanticism.

This exhibition was organized by the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Conn., and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius, and the Henry Luce Foundation. Local support is provided by the Leo Potishman Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Trustee, and Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Promotional support is provided by Star-Telegram, WFAA, and American Airlines.
