American Modern: Hopper to O’Keeffe at MoMA – New York

August 17, 2013 through January 26, 2014 – Curated from MoMA’s own collection, “American Modern: Hopper to O’Keeffe,” takes a fresh look at the museum’s holdings of American paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and sculptures created between 1915 and 1950 in the context of the cultural preoccupations rapidly changing American society during the first half of the twentieth century. Bringing together a variety of the Museum’s most celebrated masterworks, contextualizing them across mediums and juxtaposing them against lesser seen but no less revelatory works by artists who expressed the compelling emotional and visual tendencies of the time, organized thematically with visual connections trumping strict chronology, the display depicts subjects as diverse as portraits, urban and rural landscapes, scenes of industry and still-life compositions.

In addition to highlights like Edward Hopper’s, “House by the Railroad,” from 1925 and Georgia O’Keeffe’s, “Evening Star, Number III,” from 1917, works and artists represented include, “Dempsey and Firpo,” from 1924 by George Bellows, “Lucky Strike,” from 1921 by Stuart Davis, “Lower Manhattan (from the Top of the Woolworth Building),” from 1913 by John Marin, “Georgia O’Keeffe – Hands,” from 1919 by Alfred Stieglitz and, “Christina’s World,” from 1948 by Andrew Wyeth among many others. Rather an encyclopedic view of American art of the period, the exhibition is intended to highlight the strengths and surprises of the permanent collection in an area that has played a major role in the institution’s history.
