American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell

February 16 — May 12, 2013

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.

Guided tours are available Tuesday - Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Tours are complimentary with exhibition admission, and reservations are not required. Simply meet in the Rosamond Gifford Sculpture Court to join a tour.

American Moderns, 1910-1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell is organized by the Brooklyn Museum.

Opening night reception tickets are available for this event. More Information »
