Between the Wars: American Printmaking in the 1920s and 30s

October 30 – December 23, 2004

During the 1920s and 30s, a number of American printmakers explored various aspects of urban and rural life, rejecting the tenets of European modernism in favor of a realistic style firmly rooted in the work of the American painter Robert Henri. Included in the exhibition will be works by artists such as John Sloan, Rockwell Kent, Thomas Hart Benton, Gordon Gilkey, Raphael Soyer, and Isabel Bishop, among others.
