20th century figurative


March 06, 1997|By John Dorsey

Although the 20th century has been called the century of abstract art, the figurative tradition has remained with us, and some of the period's greatest artists, including Matisse and Picasso, never abandoned it. Figurative sculpture of the 20th century is the subject of an exhibit of the work of 34 artists currently on view at the Mitchell Gallery of St. John's College in Annapolis.

The traveling show, organized by the Edwin A. Ulrich Museum of Art of Wichita State University, features works by artists ranging in time from turn of the century figure Auguste Rodin to contemporary sculptor Manuel Neri, and includes Paul Manship, Jo Davidson, Jacques Lipchitz, Alexander Archipenko, Gaston Lachaise, Jean Arp, Theodore Roszak and Louise Nevelson.

The show is in the Mitchell Gallery of St. John's College, Annapolis, from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays and 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Fridays, through April 13. For information, call (410) 626-2556.
