Lilies of the Field, 1915 Walter Manninen Collection

The American artist Theresa Bernstein (1890–2002) made and exhibited her work in every decade of the twentieth century. Bernstein’s style began as a kind of realism, often linked by critics to the Ashcan School, but ended up more expressionist. Musically inclined, she was a fan of opera,dance and jazz: She painted Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Charlie Parker, and Martha Graham, as well as Verdi’s Requiem. Her subjects include suffrage meetings, World War I parades, immigrants in the 1920s, hippies in the 1960s, and scenes of the fishing port and artist colony Gloucester.

This exhibition includes 44 works that are travelling from New York City, to four additional venues in Lancaster, PA, Beverly, MA, Philadelphia, PA, and Boca Raton, FL. 

This exhibition and related programming is sponsored in part by the Bruce T. Halle Family Foundation, the Van Otterloo Family Foundation,and Walter J. Manninen.
