Scènes urbaines du début XX ème – L’été de l’art #2

American artists of the early 20th century sought to interpret the beauty, power, and anxiety of the modern age in diverse ways. Through depictions of bustling city crowds and breathtaking metropolitan vistas, 25 black-and-white prints in this exhibition explore the spectacle of urban modernity. Prints by recognized artists such as Louis Lozowick and Reginald Marsh, as well as lesser-known artists including Mabel Dwight, Gerald Geerlings, Victoria Hutson Huntley, Martin Lewis, and Stow Wengenroth, are included in this exhibition.

The exhibition is curated by Charles Ritchie, associate curator, department of American and modern prints and drawings, National Gallery of Art.
