Contemporary artists follow many muses, as is apparent in this selection of paintings and works on paper. The four decades represented begin in the 1950s with the Abstract Expressionism of Joan Mitchell and Kumi Sugai. In the 1960s Pop Art emerges in Robert Indiana's work along with the minimal expression of Southern California artist Lorser Feitelson. By the 1970s Washington Color Painters Gene Davis and Tom Downing were painting minimal compositions on unsized canvas, staining the color into the fabric. Subject matter depicted in a realist expression dominated much of the 1970s, and the Museum's collection is rich in examples of realist work by Jack Beal, Alfred Leslie, Lowell Nesbitt and Martha Alf. From the 1980s to the present no single outlook has taken precedence, as the 1981 painting by Robert Reed and John Baldessart's 1995 mixed-media collage witness. Such diversity underlies the strength of post-World War II American art.
