Ten Masterworks from the Whitney Museum of American Art focuses on masterpieces by early twentieth-century artists who challenged the boundaries of American art. Representing the finest works in the Whitney’s collection, these ten paintings trace the emergence of modernism and abstraction during the first five decades of the twentieth century, describing a range of narratives from urban society to the pastoral landscape, portraiture, and still life. This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY). – www.joslyn.org
