Minnesota Modern: Four Artists of the Twentieth Century
As Minnesota approached the mid-century mark after World War II, the Twin Cities enjoyed a thriving community of talented and successful visual artists. Among them, four individuals stood out; Dewey Albinson (1898-1971), Cameron Booth (1892-1980), Clement Haupers (1900-1982) and Elof Wedin (1901-1983). These artists dominated the art scene in Minnesota for decades. Through their lengthy careers and enormous output, each artist contributed a great deal to bring modernism to the state. The artists are represented with paintings and prints drawn from the Minnesota Historical Society’s permanent collection. Minnesota Modern is presented in conjunction with the release of a publication of the same name by Afton Press.
