American Art: 1900 - 1960

  • Jul 11, 2004 – Dec 23, 2004
Installation view: Weatherspoon Art Museum, 2004.

Last year, the Weatherspoon Art Museum initiated a two-part exhibition organized to further raise awareness of the substantive holdings in its permanent collection. American Art 1900-1960 will again present major ideas and styles in American art from the first part of the twentieth century. The forty-four works selected include several changes form last year's checklist for the purpose of rotating additional collection highlights into the exhibition. One update for this season is The Flapper, a 1922 painting by Guy Pene du Bois. Du Bois was a subtle observer of the social world around him. He drew his subjects from the middle or upper classes in American and often depicted them with a hint of satire.

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
