"Charles Sheeler: Across Media"
2006-05-07 until 2006-08-27
National Gallery of Art
Washington, DC, USA

Charles Sheeler: Across Media at The National Gallery in Washington, is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the complex, often paradoxical relationships between photography, film, drawing, printmaking, and painting that were so central to Sheeler's art. A celebration of the formal clarity and beauty of Sheeler's works, the exhibition will build on a core of masterpieces recently added to the National Gallery of Art collections, including the magnificent painting "Classic Landscape", 1931, the masterful Conte crayon drawings "Interior with Stove", 1932, and "Counterpoint", 1949, as well as three striking examples of the artist's "Doylestown" photographs.

Highlights include the finest works from the series of paintings and drawings inspired by Sheeler's photographs of the River Rouge plant, commissioned by Ford Motor Company in 1927. Also featured is "Manhatta" (1920), a collaboration between Sheeler and Paul Strand that is regarded as the first avant-garde city film made in the United States. The exhibition will conclude with images inspired by Sheeler's experiments with montage in the 1940s and 1950s.

The exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Altria Group, Inc.

Schedule: National Gallery of Art, Washington, May 7- August 27, 2006; The Art Institute of Chicago, October 7, 2006-January 7, 2007; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, de Young, February 10 - May 6, 2007
