Maurice Prendergast

Gallery C
American Paintings

Maurice Prendergast, who exhibited with the Eight in 1908, was one of the first American artists to experiment with post-impressionism. Three of his oils, including Crepuscule (left) and Landscape With Figures, were exhibited at the Armory Show; all were characteristic of his work from this period: landscapes with short brushstrokes and bright colors. Prendergast's involvement in exhibitions with Ashcan realists John Sloan, Robert Henri, and George Luks both before and after the Armory Show speaks to the unnegotiated field of modern art in early 20th-century America.
