> DESCRIPTION

During the early twentieth century, the enigmatic and charismatic John Graham (1886–1961) and his circle of New York artists, which included Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, and Willem de Kooning, forged their identities and dramatically transformed conceptions of what a painting or sculpture could be.

They, along with others in Graham’s orbit, such as Jackson Pollock and David Smith, played a critical role in developing and defining American modernism. American Vanguards showcases more than sixty works of art from this vital period that demonstrate the inter-connections, common sources, and shared stimuli among the members of Graham’s circle.

American Vanguards: Graham, Davis, Gorky, de Kooning and Their Circle, 1927–1942 was organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Massachusetts. Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Henry Luce Foundation, and by the Dedalus Foundation. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
