Works by artists such as Patrick Henry Bruce, Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, David Hockney, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock, Charles Sheeler, and Wayne Thiebaud are included. With more than 180 illustrations and an illuminating essay by Bruce Robertson, the catalog demonstrates the Ebsworth Collection’s rich and varied look at a dynamic era in our national art. Entries for 74 works give details on works and the artists who created them. An appendix includes provenance and exhibition information.
