Drawn entirely from the deep holdings of the Whitney’s collection, Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art focuses on the tension and overlap between two strong currents in 20th-century art: realism and Surrealism. Real/Surreal features paintings, drawings, photographs, and prints that elucidate how artists—depending on intention and influence—developed degrees of reality in which imagination held more or less sway. Among the notable artists included in the exhibition are Charles Burchfield, Paul Cadmus, Joseph Cornell, Philip Guston, Edward Hopper, Man Ray, Ben Shahn, Charles Sheeler, Yves Tanguy, George Tooker, and Andrew Wyeth. Of particular interest are artists whose work is less known to a wide-ranging audience.
This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
