America's Cool Modernism: O'Keeffe to Hopper

Friday 23 March 2018Sunday 22 July 2018

Exhibition exploring the 'cool' in American art in the early 20th century, from early experiments in abstraction by artists like Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove and Paul Strand to the strict, clean precisionist paintings of Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth. Showcasing significant examples of American art produced during the roaring 1920s and Depression-era 1930s, some for the very first time in the UK, the works on display share a smooth, crisp, clean appearance and a cool, impersonal treatment, an apparent detachment. They evoke a world in which human beings have been removed or substituted.
