Jan Matulka (1890—1972) was a skilled artist and influential modernist, yet most people don’t know his name as well as they do other artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe, or Arshile Gorky. Despite his presence and participation in some of the most impactful moments in the development of modern art, Matulka has been pushed to the periphery of art history. This exhibition reevaluates his position in the development of modern American art through sixteen works by the artist and his contemporaries, including Max Weber, George L.K. Morris, Fannie Hillsmith, and Gerome Kamrowski.
