Deconstructing pictorial conventions of the past, artists of the second half of the twentieth and early twenty-first century reinvented the picture plane. This installation presents extreme positions, including flat silkscreens and thickly built-up oils, each circumventing more traditional, expressive forms of paint application. The installation presents a confluence of high-profile loans from private collections and significant recent acquisitions.

Thursday Night Salon at the Museum of Art: "Spring Flowers: Andy Warhol and James Rosenquist"
Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow Sarah Montross and Curator Joachim Homann moderate a conversation about flowers in Pop Art, exemplified by a silkscreen by Andy Warhol, recently donated to Bowdoin by the Andy Warhol Foundation, and a monumental painting by James Rosenquist on loan to the Museum.
