DESCRIPTION

The painting and sculpture collection of the David Winton Bell Gallery contains approximately 150 works, all of which date to the decades after the 1950s. The painting collection includes an extensive number of works from the 1960s and 1970s, in particular paintings by Jules Olitski (20) and Walter Darby Bannard (11). Also included are works by artists affiliated with the second generation of the Abstract Expressionism and Painterly Abstraction movements: Edward Avedisian, William Baziotes, Ray Parker, Larry Poon, and Joan Snyder. Paintings by Alice Neel, Wolf Kahn, Philip Pearlstein, and Pierre Alechinsky stand out, as well as works by younger artists such as Jonathan Lasker, Ross Bleckner, and Mel Bochner.

Similarly, the sculpture collection consists of works by national and international artists, mostly working in the 1960s and 1970s, including important individual pieces by Joseph Cornell, Jean Arp, Anthony Caro, Alan Kirili, Italo Scanga, and Dieter Roth, and an outstanding piece by Lee Bontecou. Also in the collection are a group of sculptures by Spanish artist Arman and a selection of pieces by well-known glass artist Dale Chihuli. Significant works from the 1980s including pieces by Tom Otterness, Christian Eckhart, and, foremost, Richard Artschwager.
