In the decades between the Great Depression and World War II, the United States underwent drastic changes. The art scene was certainly not immune to these changes and endured its own disruptions. Some American artists opposed European influence to increasingly focus on purely American subjects and document uniquely American experiences. Known as Regionalists, or American Scene painters, these artists absorbed inspiration from their immediate surroundings and captured the exceptional character of every region of the country. This exhibition, culled from a private collection, features the work of more than a dozen artists who developed individual approaches to the changing face of modern American art during the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.
