American Art since 1900

Edited by Annette DiMeo Carlozzi and Kelly Baum

 

Table of Contents and Excerpt

 

With the Blanton's new American collection catalogue, students, scholars, and art lovers alike will have the opportunity to trace the history of artistic achievement in the United States from the last century to the present day through this most important collection of American art. The core of the Blanton's American art collection was formed by the significant gift of the Mari and James A. Michener Collection, which came to the museum in 1968 and 1991. Today, the Blanton's collection of modern and contemporary American art is a significant resource of more than 4,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, and works in new media from 1900 to the present.

This attractive catalogue thoroughly presents selections from the collection's noteworthy concentrations: early American modernism, the American scene and social realism, abstract expressionism, and paintings of the 1960s. Artists represented include Jo Baer, Jim Dine, Philip Evergood, Helen Frankenthaler, Arshile Gorky, Adolph Gottlieb, Hans Hofmann, Ellsworth Kelly, Franz Kline, Jacob Lawrence, Brice Marden, Joan Mitchell, Mark Rothko, Peter Saul, Ben Shahn, Raphael Soyer, and Richard Tuttle, among many others. The catalogue also includes a selection of contemporary art in all media by a culturally diverse group of emerging and established figures such as Jeremy Blake, Rachel Harrison, Arturo Herrera, Byron Kim, Fabian Marcaccio, Dario Robleto, Shahzia Sikander, Amy Sillman, and Bill Viola. Accompanying the more than two hundred images are various essays by museum professionals, artists, and members of the art community.
