– Modernism from the National Gallery of Art: The Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Collection, presents the exciting opportunity to view in San Francisco, 50, seminal, post-War works including iconic paintings by among others, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Barnett Newman, Robert Rauschenberg and Frank Stella which have made a rare journey from Washington, D.C. for this exceptional exhibition. Organized into three generational groupings, which segue from artists working in the modernist to post-modernist to contemporary lexicon, this remarkable overview of American art from the end of World War II through the end of the twentieth century includes at its core the Barnett Newman masterpiece, “The Stations of the Cross,” (1958–66), a series of 15 paintings considered the artist’s most important work, which is displayed as the artist intended within a discrete, chapel-like gallery devoted solely to the work in its entirety. Other highlights of the display include Johns’s, “Perilous Night,” (1982), Lichtenstein’s, “Painting with Statue of Liberty,” (1983) and Stella’s, “Flin Flon IV,” (1969).
