Huntington Art Gallery, Second Floor, West Wing

Three recently acquired works of 20th-century British art are the centerpiece of a small focus exhibition titled Blast! Modernist Painting in Britain, 1900–1940, on view through Nov. 14 in the Huntington Art Gallery (second floor, west wing). Mark Gertler’s portrait of fellow artist Dora Carrington (1912), Duncan Grant’s Cubist-inspired Vase of Flowers with Lemon (1913), and David Bomberg’s powerful landscape The Slopes of Navao, Picos de Europa (1935) form the core of the installation. These works are supplemented by nine significant loans from a private collection. A related display of Modernist drawings will be on view July 30 in the Huntington Art Gallery’s Works on Paper Room.
