In 2017 the Farnsworth is presenting two major exhibitions featuring the work of women who have played important roles in twentieth-century American art, both of whom also had deep connections to Maine: Marguerite Zorach and Louise Nevelson. In conjunction with these shows, the museum is presenting two additional installations from its own collections, one highlighting works by other women artists and the second works that depict women.
In the Rothschild Gallery will be a selection of works in which women are the subject. It will include examples by artists such as Washington Allston, Frank Benson, Milton Avery, Louise Nevelson, Will Barnet, Grace Hartigan, Robert Indiana, Philip Pearlstein, Andy Warhol, Jamie Wyeth, Alex Katz, and Julian Opie.
In the Library Gallery will be works by women, among them Berenice Abbott, Georgia O’Keeffe, Elaine de Kooning, Beverly Hallam, Lois Dodd, Joyce Tenneson, and others
