San Marino, CA

Three recently acquired works of 20th-century British art are the centerpiece of a small focus exhibition titled Blast! Modernist Painting in Britain, 1900–1940, in the Huntington Art Gallery (second floor, west wing). Mark Gertler’s portrait of fellow artist Dora Carrington (1912), Duncan Grant’s Cubist-inspired Vase of Flowers with Lemon (1913), and David Bomberg’s powerful landscape The Slopes of Navao, Picos de Europa (1935) form the core of the installation. These works are supplemented by nine significant loans from a private collection.
