In the 20th century, “isms” flourished with the birth of new art movements seeking to express the modern spirit. A diversity of approaches characterizes Modernist works, such as Harry Holtzman’s Red, Orange, Green, and Yellow. Holtzman’s abstract painting, a new acquisition, embodies an interest in line and color, a return to the fundamentals of art shared by many Modernist works. This exhibition seeks to prove that “isms” are dynamic concepts and that by identifying their traits we can develop a broader appreciation for artists’ stylistic decisions.
