In 2013\, the Tampa Museum of Art is pleased to present 107 important American paintings from The Phillips Collection in Washington\, D .C. Founded in 1921 as America’s first museum of modern art\, the Phillips Collection is world renowned for its exceptional collection of modern Ameri can and European masterpieces. For this exhibition\, curators selected work s from the 1850s through 1960s that showcase the full breadth of its Americ an art\, featuring those exceptional artists who were able to find their ow n voices and create work that was deeply personal and expressed with fresh vision\, yet connected to the great traditions of the past and the present. Geniuses of American painting in the exhibition include Winslow Homer\, Th omas Eakins\, Childe Hassam\, Rockwell Kent\, Georgia O'Keeffe\, Edward Hop per\, Grandma Moses\, Jacob Lawrence\, Jackson Pollock\, Clyfford Still\, a nd Mark Rothko.

The Phillips Collection is a rich assembly of inde pendent-minded American artists\, most of whom were alive and actively exhi biting when their work entered the museum’s collection. Many of the artists included in the exhibition became acquaintances and good friends with the museum’s founder\, Duncan Phillips (1886-1966)\, who often acquired their w ork in large numbers.  An early and articulate proponent of America’s natio nal heritage as “a fusion of various sensitivities\, a unification of diffe rences\,” Phillips was far ahead of his time in seeing diversity as a posit ive influence on American art and part of its inherent internationalism.

To See as Artists See: American Art from The Phillips Collection\, organized by The Phillips Collection\, Washington\, D.C.\, makes its f inal stop at the Tampa Museum of Art after international stops in Madrid\, Tokyo and Rovereto\, Italy\, and most recently in Nashville and Fort Worth.   The exhibition returns home to The Phillips Collection for a special pres entation in 2014.
