DESCRIPTION

William Henry Johnson (1901–1970) is a pivotal figure in modern American art. A virtuoso skilled in various media and techniques, he produced thousands of works over a career that spanned decades, continents, and genres. On view in its entirety for the first time, a seminal collection of 20 landscapes, still life paintings, and portraits covering key stages in Johnson’s career will be presented in William H. Johnson: An American Modern. Developed by Baltimore’s James E. Lewis Museum of Art, Morgan State University, this SITES exhibition represents a unique opportunity to share the artist’s oeuvre with a broader audience. The Cleveland Museum of Art will feature additional works from its own collection.
