We feature American paintings and works on paper from the 1920s to the 1950s with special interest in the Urban/Industrial Scene, Modernism, Atelier 17, Surrealism, and African American work.
Last Two Days: Making Space
Anne Ryan, Collage, 1951
The Estate of the Artist
Works by DOROTHY DEHNER and ANNE RYAN are in Making Space: Women Artists and Post-War Abstraction at the Museum of Modern Art, NY. The exhibition ends tomorrow, Sunday, August 13, 2017.
The paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, and drawings, date from the end of the Second World War, 1945, to the beginning of the Feminist Movement, 1968.
A label for the show notes “Abstraction dominated artistic practice during these years, as many artists working in the aftermath of World War II sought an international language that might transcend national and regional narratives – and for women artists, additionally, those relating to gender.” One might add that the figure had become too banal to paint.
The nearly 100 works in many mediums by more than 50 artists (including women from Europe, the Americas, and Japan), form an ethereal and mesmerizing exhibition.
Of course we were especially pleased to see both Dorothy Dehner and Anne Ryan included and then so intrigued to find them nearly side-by-side. Dehner is
represented by a single piece of six bronze parts, Enounter, 1969; Ryan by four collages.
