American Modernism: Selections from the Kunin Collection

January 1, 2015 - June 12, 2016
Galleries 359, 360, 361

In just four decades, Myron Kunin assembled one of the most important private collections of American Modernism. The artworks span the diverse artistic styles and movements of the early 20th century, from abstraction to American realism. These galleries feature the strengths of his collection and his favorites: nudes, circus performers, social themes, landscapes and seascapes, abstraction, and portraits. It’s the whole story of American art, thoroughly and engagingly told in just a slice of a much larger collection—a credit to Kunin’s discerning eye and his irrepressible love of the chase after great art.
