On display will be a comprehensive survey of the work of Theresa Bernstein, an extraordinary American artist who has gone mostly unrecognized in the annals of art and who lived until the age of 112.
Exploring themes such as women's suffrage, immigration, unemployment, racism, and the first World War, Bernstein had the distinction of making and exhibiting work in every decade of the twentieth century, achieved remarkable success for a woman of her generation.
Yet after a brilliant start, her art fell into obscurity. Despite this neglect, her paintings have gradually made their way into important museum collections and surveys of American art. This retrospective exhibition allows us to see masterworks from her remarkable career.
This event is open to the public.
