American Modern: Hopper to O’Keeffe at MoMA

American Modern: Hopper to O'Keeffe at MoMA is curated from the museum’s permanent collection and seeks to take a fresh look at American art created between 1915 and 1950.

As you know, American society was undergoing a dramatic and rapid amount of change in the early 20th century. American Modern is a thoughtful study of the period’s cultural preoccupations. It’s also an attempt to prove that the Modern recognized the contributions of American artists during its earliest years.

The show includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures and is organized thematically—from urban and rural landscapes, still-life compositions, portraitures, and to images of industry. 49 artists are represented, all born from 1870 to 1917, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Alfred Steiglitz, Edward Hopper, and Andrew Wyeth.

Attaché Tip: Don’t miss O’Keeffe’s classic “Farmhouse Window and Door” outside the exhibition’s entrance.
