Arthur Dove: Miniature Laboratories

May 13–August 27, 2023

Drawn primarily from the Carter’s collection, Arthur Dove: Miniature Laboratories examines a selection of work from the last years of Dove’s life (1940–46). These small works were created when Dove was confined in his home and the surrounding area in Long Island, NY, due to health issues. During this time, he created hundreds of works on paper, most measuring 3-by-4-inches, experimenting with various mediums and techniques. An in-depth examination and analysis of these works by the Carter’s conservation team reveals new insight into Dove’s creative process.
