Corcoran Biennial

October 2 – 25


The Biennial exhibitions at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., have long been regarded as important attempts to provide broad surveys of changing styles in American art. The current exhibition consists of thirty-eight canvases selected from the 26th Biennial held in early 1959. Representing dominant trends in art are works by such outstanding artists as Albers, Donati, Hartigan, Kantor, Maclver, Morris, and Pereira.
