20th Cent. Paintings

A Basque town bombed by the Germans during the Spanish Civil War in April 1937. Picasso completed his massive, black, white, and grey anti-war mural by early June 1937. His Cubist approach to portraying the figures adds to the sense of destruction & chaos Guernica (Resides in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Spain)
Marcel Duchamp painting in various shades of brown, it portrays a nude woman in a series of broken planes, capturing motion down several steps in a single image. Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2, by Marcel Duchamp The painting reflects a Cubist sense of division of space, and its portrait of motion echoes the work of the Futurists.
Most famous of surrealist paintings. The landscape of the scene echoes Port Lligat, Dalí’s home. The ants, flies, clocks, and the Port Lligat landscape are motifs in many Dalí paintings, and the trompe l’oeil depiction of figures is typical of his works. The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali (Resides in MOMA)
1951 companion piece of The Persistence of Memory hangs at the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali
This painting depicts five women in a brothel. However, the images of the women are partly broken into disjointed, angular facets. The degree of broken-ness is rather mild compared to later Cubist works, but it was revolutionary in 1907. Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, by Pablo Picasso This work can also be found at the MOMA.
The painting simultaneously echoes the bright lights of a marquee, resembles a pattern of streets as seen from above, and creates a feeling of vitality and vibrancy, not unlike the music itself. This work can also be found at the MOMA. Broadway Boogie Woogie, by Piet Mondrian.
A realistic approach (including such details as the fluorescent light of the diner, the coffee pots, Phillies cigar sign atop the diner) to convey a sense of a loneliness/isolation Nighthawks by Edward Hopper
A dreamlike scene that includes many motifs common to Chagall, notably the lamb and peasant life. In addition to the two giant faces—a green face on the right and a lamb’s head on the left—other images a series of houses, some of them upside-down. I and the Village by Marc Chagall
She lays in the cornfield wearing a pink dress, facing away from the viewer, her body partly twisted and hair blowing slightly in the wind. In the far distance is a 3-story farmhouse with dual chimneys and 2 dormers, along with two sheds to its right. Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth
Painted his most famous work after a visit to Eldon, Iowa, when he saw a Carpenter Gothic style house with a distinctive Gothic window in its gable. Upon returning to his studio, he used his sister Nan and his dentist as the models for the two figures. American Gothic by Grant Wood
