From Hopper to Rothko: America's Road to Modern Art presents the development of North American painting in the first half of the 20th century. It illustrates three major themes – landscapes, portraits, and cityscapes – and follows the evolution of abstract painting during this time. After 1945, these developments culminated in Abstract Expressionism, and New York City became the new center of the art world. The show brings together 68 paintings from The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C. The Museum Barberini presents 68 masterpieces from The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C.
