Oscar Bluemner’s America: Picturing Paterson, New Jersey
Selections from the Vera Kouba Bleumner Collection, Stetson University, De Land, Florida.
The exhibition focuses on Oscar Bluemner’s representations of Paterson, New Jersey, a once-thriving manufacturing center that became a center of social, political, and economic upheaval in the early 20th century. It was typical of American Modernist painter Oscar Bluemner (1867–1938) to neglect Paterson’s picturesque natural feature, the striking waterfall, in favor of factories and workmen’s cottages.
