"Flowers," 1970, screenprint by Andy Warhol. Gift of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

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.
