Figuring the Human in Twentieth-Century Art
(Mexican, 1899 – 1991)
Woman in Yellow and White
Gift of Mr. Marvin Small
Figuring the Human in Twentieth-Century Art was organized around the iconographic themes of the female nude, the male physique, portraiture, abstraction, children, religious figures, and comic caricature. Included were six new acquisitions, controversial creations by Andres Serrano and Robert Crumb, strong graphic imagery by emerging printmakers Tom Huck and William Fick, and classic examples of the oeuvre of Diane Arbus and Chuck Close. The objects on view spanned the twentieth century and several continents - from early modern American works such as Abraham Walkowitz’s 1905 drawing, Male Bather, to Richard Hamilton’s poster design for the Marcel Duchamp retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery in London, 1966.
