Advancing American Art
August 25 – September 29
In 1948 the Museum of Art acquired, through the War Assets Administration, thirty-six paintings by some of the foremost artists of the post-war United States. These paintings formed approximately one half of the 1946 exhibition, Advancing American Art, originated by the department of State to tour Europe and Latin America. Artists represented are Jack Levine, Stuart Davis, Georgia O’Keefe, Abraham Rattner and Edward Hopper. This is the first time that all thirty-six works have been on exhibition together in fifteen years.
