20th Century / Contemporary

The Museum continues to expand its collection of works by artists born after 1900.  Among the earlier works is a collection of paintings and prints by the German Expressionist and Modernist artist G√ľnther Spaltmann, including his powerful Verfolgt (Pursued), from 1939 (left), and his much later Remembrance of Sutherland--June Wind, 1971 (right).
