The RECENT ACQUISITIONS exhibition also highlights a stellar group of watercolors and drawings by the German artist George Grosz, as well as pieces by Max Beckmann, Lyonel Feininger, E.L. Kirchner, Gustav Klimt, Käthe Kollwitz and other Expressionists. Leonard Baskin, who will be the subject of a one-man show at the gallery this fall, and contemporary artist Sue Coe are also featured. In the area of self-taught art, the exhibition includes works by Ilija Bosilj, Henry Darger, Grandma Moses, Michel Nedjar, Bill Traylor and others.
