Philadelphia’s Woodmere Art Museum is hosting the current exhibition “John Folinsbee and American Modernism.” John Folinsbee (1892-1972) was well known as an impressionist landscape painter, but the Woodmere’s exhibition, curated by Kirsten Jensen, an expert on the artist’s work and Director of the John F. Folinsbee Catalogue Raisonné, takes a new look at his work and shows his move toward modernism and his contributions to the development of modern art in America. Many of the paintings on display are on loan from private collectors and have never before been seen by the public. The exhibition will be open through March 6, 2011.
