Modern Art Abstract Expressionism
The James Pearson Duffy Department of modern Art collection, which spans the period from mid-20th century to the current time, has an especially powerful focus on post-World War II American art, including good samples of Abstract Expressionist artwork, Minimalism, and Pop Art.
Most crucial works in these areas were gift ideas of Detroit collector W. Hawkins Ferry or the museum help team he founded, the Friends of contemporary Art, including signature functions Willem de Kooning, Donald Judd, and Andy Warhol. Article World War II European art is well-represented by crucial functions by Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon. Gifts of major personal collections of cup by Aviva and Jack A. Robinson and turned lumber by Robert M. Bohlen significantly enhanced an already encyclopedic assortment of studio craft items in most media. Purchase of works by youthful artists is ongoing and the collection is beginning to include brand new news such as for instance installation and video clip art.
