American Art at The Phillips Collection
This interactive feature provides a view of 150 years of American art as represented in The Phillips Collection. The works illustrate Phillips's taste and his enthusiasm for contemporary American artists, many of whom he knew personally and whose work he collected in depth.
Images, commentary about the works of art, and biographies of the artists are accessible through the timeline and also through indexes of more than 650 works of art in the program. Artists and their works may be searched by artist name, medium, or date. The program offers an opportunity to see many examples of the work of a single artist, as The Phillips Collection is noted for its “units,” extensive holdings of works by such artists as Dove, Prendergast, Avery, Marin, and Diebenkorn.
