American Modernists

January 27, 2007 - March 1, 2008


In the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, artists in Europe and America began discarding the conventions and traditions of the past in search of creating something "new." Personal expression and individualism were embraced as artists forged new visual vocabularies in search of being "original" and modern.

American Modernists explores the stylistic developments and diverse approaches to the image-making process as American artists undertook to create new art during the 20th Century.

  • Funded in part by the National Advisory Board of the UW Art Museum.
