Addison Gallery of American Art
USA United States of America
This exhibition features art works drawn from the collections of these two important teaching museums, the Addison Gallery of American Art and the Sheldon Memorial At Gallery and Sculpture Garden at the University of Nebraska.
Painting, sculpture, and works on paper by artists such as George Inness, Ralph Blakekock, George Bellows, Patrick Henry Bruce, Arthur B. Davies, Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, and Georgia O’Keeffe present the multiple voices of American modernism from the 1890s to the 1930s.
Parallels in each of the collections include a strong representation of nineteenth century artists Inness and Blakelock, and Aschan School painters such as george Bellows, Robert Henri, George Luks and John Sloan. Later pairing of work include two paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe—the Addison’s Wave, Night, and the Sheldon’s New York, Night, both from 1928—and the Sheldon’s Arch Hotel of 1929 and the Addison’s Red Cart of 1932, by Stuart Davis.
