Between the Great Depression and World War II, American art was transformed by the influx of European artists fleeing war and oppression. One effect was the contribution of surrealist and abstract artists to the burgeoning, and ultimately paramount,  international modern art scene of America in the 1950s. Another effect was in reaction to the surreal and abstract by American artists who focused on American subjects and the American experience. It is these artists that are celebrated in this exhibition. These artists all explored the American condition and depicted various aspects of regional character.
