American Art of Our Century

By Lloyd Goodrich; John I. H. Baur | Go to book overview

catalogue of the collection

Paintings, sculpture, watercolors, and drawings acquired by the Museum from its founding through December 31, 1960, are listed below. Dimensions of paintings are in inches, height preceding width. The dimensions of watercolors and drawings are sight (measured within the frame or mat opening), unless otherwise noted.

The largest dimension of sculpture is given, in inches. For reliefs, height and width are given, in that order.

Unless otherwise stated, the support for watercolors and drawings is paper.

The term composition board is used for fabricated boards, such as Presdwood, Masonite, etc., and cardboard for light paper boards, such as academy board.

Dates following titles are inscribed on the works themselves unless enclosed in parentheses. A dash between two dates ( 1927-30) indicates that the work was executed during these years; a diagonal line ( 1927/30) that it was worked on again in the latter year.

The figures preceding the decimal point in accession numbers indicate the year of acquisition. For example, 54.17 means that the work was acquired in 1954. All works accessioned in 1931, not identified as purchases, were part of the private collection of Gertrude V. Whitney, which she gave to the Museum on its foundation.

Page references are to illustrations.

In memory of Juliana Force, the Museum acquires each year at least one work by an artist under thirty, designated as a Juliana Force Purchase.
