Underscoring the distinction of Sheldon’s collection of twentieth-century abstract paintings, this exhibition features small-scale works that give insight to a wide range of abstraction’s visual vocabulary. These works offer close encounters with the materials and marks employed by various artists to create nonfigurative art. Josef Albers (1888–1976), Polly Apfelbaum (born 1955), Burgoyne Diller (1906–1965), Morgan Russell (1886–1953), and Esphyr Slobodkina (1908–2002) are among the artists featured.
