For over 30 years Somerville Manning Gallery has specialized in paintings by the Wyeth family. The 4th American Masters exhibition continues to follow the artworks of N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth and the artists of their eras. The show of original paintings explores over 100 years of masters in the American art world.
Along with paintings by N.C. Wyeth will be works by American impressionist Maurice Prendergast, American realists Robert Henri and George Bellows, and Philadelphia native Thomas Pollock Anshutz among others.
Paintings by the father of abstract expressionist, Hans Hofmann, will coincide with the Post-War period in which Andrew Wyeth was exploring realism. American modernists Milton Avery and Alfred Henry Maurer will also be featured alongside the Andrew Wyeth paintings, representing other realist painters in this period. The exhibition includes other works from many important American schools and traditions that transition from realism to abstraction, including the Ashcan School, the Eight, the Stieglitz circle, and Western art.
