May 7, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

he Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens announced today it has purchased two major paintings by transformative 20th-century American artists: Lattice and Awning by Arthur Dove (1880–1946) and Summer Fantasy by George Bellows (1882–1925).

Dove was among the first American abstract painters and was not previously represented in a public collection in Los Angeles. Summer Fantasy is a late-career landscape that enhances The Huntington’s representation of Bellows’ work. Both paintings will go on view July 19, 2014, when The Huntington opens five new rooms in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art to display its growing collection of 20th-century works.
