Today I was fortunate enough to have visited the Dallas Museum of Art, where I visited their ongoing exhibit titled "Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties."
I saw many famous works I'd never seen before. Works by Edward Hopper, Thomas Hart Benton, Joseph Stella (his famous American Landscape--Dan has a poem on it), Elsie Driggs, Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Sheeler, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Demuth, among others.
The showing is being held in the Barrel Vault and Hanley, Lamont, Rachofsky, and Stoffel Galleries.
The website notes: "Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties is the first wide-ranging examination of American fine art from the end of World War I through the start of the Great Depression. This nationally touring exhibition, featuring more than 130 works of painting, sculpture, and photography by more than sixty-five artists, will demonstrate how American artists of the period embraced a progressive, idealized realism visible in a resurgence of figuration and in highly distilled images of American places and things. Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, Youth and Beauty will include three works from the DMA’s collections."
