A follow-up to the Dixon’s popular 2009 exhibition, Regional Dialect, Modern Dialect will bring together more than 50 American Scene and modernist paintings from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. The exhibition reveals both the shared concerns and jubilations of artists from every region of the country during a fluctuating and demanding time in American history. From simplified and fragmented rural landscapes to modern industrial cities and the people that inhabit them to purely abstract compositions, Modern Dialect illustrates the scope of the American modernist aesthetic and the vision and integrity each artist brought to the representation of the American experience. With works by George Ault, Charles Sheeler, John Steuart Curry, and Charles Burchfield.
