The Phillips Collection

1600 21st St NW, Washington, DC








Phillips Collection considers itself America’s first museum of modern art and displays works from the likes of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Mark Rothko, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Vincent van Gogh. It was founded by Duncan Phillips, whose father was a Pittsburgh window glass millionaire. The current exhibition is Bice Lazzari: The Poetry of Mark-Making showing the work of Bice Lazzari, an Italian female painter whose mid-century works focused on simplistic and abstract lines, dots, and irregular shapes.
