American Mosaic: Picturing Modern Art through the Eye of Duncan Phillips

Exhibition Website

Aug 6 2016 - Dec 4 2016

This exhibition, organized by The Phillips Collection, presents a thematic journey that reveals the breadth of America's modernist vision.

Beginning with the great American art heroes of the late 19th century, whose work set the course for modern art in the United States, to conclude with the Abstract Expressionists, whose new visual language turned American art into a global force. 

Included are 65 works created between the 1860s and 1960s by artists such as Milton Avery, Alexander Calder, Richard Diebenkorn, Thomas Eakins, Helen Frankenthaler, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, and Georgia O'Keeffe.
