Stanton Macdonald-Wright (American, 1890-1973). Synchromy No. 3, 1917. Oil on canvas, 39 x 38 in. (99.0 x 96.5 cm). Brooklyn Museum, Bequest of Edith and Milton Lowenthal, 1992.11.24.

Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, the exhibition American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell, explores a wide variety of American art from the first half of the twentieth century. The exhibition consists of 53 paintings and four sculptures by such prominent artists as Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, Milton Avery, Stuart Davis and Arthur Dove. Drastic social, political and economical changes during this time period challenged artists to define what could be considered “modern” from a wide variety of definitions. From abstraction and cityscapes to realism and nature, these works selected from the Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection offer a new perspective on American modern art.
