During the five decades between 1910 and 1960, American society underwent tumultuous transformations, and the nation's artists accordingly rejected tradition and sought new ways to portray contemporary life. Displaying the breadth of this renaissance, the 60 color reproductions here highlight such artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, N.C. Wyeth, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, and Grandma Moses, but also somewhat lesser known talents like Reginald Marsh, George Ault, and Francis Criss. The texts trace how Cubism and other avant-garde European art movements arrived on these shores, making a major impact on the American scene.
