Somerville Manning Gallery announces the American Masters: Art of the 19th – 21st Centuries Exhibition.

Opening reception: Friday, April 19, 2013 from 5:30 -7:30 at their location in Breck’s Mill in Wilmington,DE. The exhibit closes June 8, 2013.

For over thirty years Somerville Manning Gallery has specialized in paintings by the Wyeth family. The 4th American Masters exhibition continues to follow the artworks of N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth and the artists of their eras.

The show of original paintings explores over 100 years of masters in the American art world. Along with paintings by N.C. Wyeth, will be works by American impressionists, Maurice Prendergast and Mary Cassatt, and American realist, Robert Henri. Landscape paintings by Charles Burchfield and John Marin are included as well as masters Thomas Pollock Anshutz, a Philadelphia native, among others.

Paintings by the father of abstract expressionism, Hans Hofmann, will coincide with the Post-War period in which Andrew Wyeth was exploring realism. American modernists Milton Avery and Alfred Henry Maurer will also be featured along side the Andrew Wyeth paintings, representing other realist painters in this period. Several great works by Jamie Wyeth and Wolf Kahn conclude the last part of the twentieth century. The exhibition includes other works from many important American schools and traditions that transition from realism to abstraction, including The Ashcan School, and The Eight.
