American Moderns, 1910-1960 : From O'Keeffe to Rockwell Exhibition Opening (Museums)
Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Ranging widely in subject matter and style, the fifty-three paintings and four sculptures featured in this exhibition from the Brooklyn Museum were produced by the most well-known artists from 1910-1960 including Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Grandma Moses, Joseph Stella, Elie Nadelman, and Norman Rockwell. Significant works by these and other artists in the exhibition exemplify their unique contributions to modern culture.Between 1910 and 1960, both American society and art underwent tumultuous and far-reaching transformations. Many artists rejected or reformulated artistic traditions, seeking new ways to make their work relevant in a contemporary context. The exhibition is organized in interpretive groupings by themes such as the city, the body, landscape, still life, and Americana, all of which explore the myriad ways in which American artists engaged with modernity.
