Works from the American Modern
The Joan Miró Foundation is presenting American Modern, an exhibition sponsored by BBVA and selected by Sarah Newman and Sarah Cash, curators at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington. The show contains over 100 works produced by American artists since the end of the nineteenth century. From landscape painters and the artists working under the influence of Paris, to Abstract Expressionism and even photography - which has an important position in the Corcoran Gallery's collections - the exhibition shows how modern art has developed in the United States up to the present day.
The artists represented include George Bellows, John Singer Sargent, Arthur Davies, Marsden Hartley, Joseph Cornell, Thomas Hart Benton, John Sloan, Edward Hopper, Milton Avery, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Cy Twombly, Richard Diebenkorn, Martin Puryear and Robert Mangold.
