Paul Klee (1879-1940) was, by the 1910s, one of the leading figures within the European modernist movement. His acclaim in Europe was quickly paralleled in the United States, where both private collectors and major museums sought out his works. This exhibition addresses the enthusiastic reception for the artist's work in the United States, especially during the 1930s and 40s.

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he created images of startling emotional power. His figurative works displayed an uncanny intimacy that brought a new openness to the art of their time. Schiele's death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements.

The experience of war has rarely been captured as precisely by a work of art as by Otto Dix's Der Krieg (War), a portfolio of fifty prints published by Karl Nierendorf. The artist had spent more than four years in the trenches and suffered the terrible events at close proximity. He was able to condense his own experiences into a brutal, but aesthetically rich series that alternates among a variety of styles.
