| Ebsworth Collection Opening at the National Gallery |
A black-tie dinner at the East Building of the National Gallery of Art celebrated the museum’s mostrecent exhibition of artwork from one of the premier private holdings of American modernist work—that ofBarney Ebsworth, an esteemed member of the Gallery’s Trustees’ Council and co-chair of its CollectorsCommittee. Entitled “Twentieth-Century American Art: The Ebsworth Collection,” the exhibition of over 70important paintings, sculptures, and drawings features such renowned artists as Georgia O’Keeffe, EdwardHopper, and Jackson Pollock, mixed in with the works of lesser-known talents like George Ault and FrancisCriss. The result is a dramatic retrospective of the evolution of American Modernism. The exhibition willbe on view through June 11, when it will then travel to the Seattle Art Museum.
