To See as Artists See: American Art from The Phillips Collection
Founded by Duncan Phillips in 1918, The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., opened to the public in 1921 as America’s first museum of modern art. To See as Artists See is the first large-scale, traveling presentation of The Phillips’s celebrated collection of American art, chronicling the broad scope and richness of its holdings from 1850 to 1960, and opening at the Amon Carter Museum on Oct. 6.
