San Loretto (2008) references a story from the Catholic faith, in which the house of the Holy Family was miraculously transported out of Nazareth for protection during the Crusades. The story appeals to Anselm Kiefer's distinctive visual themes of ruin and renewal, depicting the great effort of carrying the structure to Italy while speaking to the destruction of the Crusades. The buildup of fragments and rubble on San Loretto coalesces into an image of a bird, which combined with the title and its layers of meaning, suggests the figure of a dove and even the Holy Spirit.

Nectarine (c. 1976) is an example of the large-scale steel sculpture for which Anthony Caro is best known. Considered to be a major influence in the development of modern sculpture, Caro was once a studio assistant to Henry Moore and sought inspiration from American sculptor David Smith. Often recognized for the revolutionary contribution of removing sculpture from pedestals and installing them directly on the ground, Caro places his work directly in the viewer’s space.

Julian Schnabel is an American painter whose style is associated with the Neo-Expressionist movement of the 1980s. Pascin Pig Passin Time is part of Schnabel’s broken plate series of paintings, inspired by the trencadís, or broken tile mosaic, of architect Antoni Gaudí. With a humorous title and depicting his first wife, Jacqueline Beaurang, the broken ceramics give Schnabel an assertive and textural surface in which to create large-scale works that captured the brash and audacious period of the 1980s.

Alex Katz is a pivotal figure in American figurative art. His colorful, stylized, flat portraiture and paintings stand in stark contrast to the Abstract Expressionism in which he came of age. Not quite minimalist, his deadpan figures have qualities that also lends comparisons to pop culture and commercial design. This painting of a man playing the ukulele highlights the sort of gatherings of young people that would interest Katz giving both the sense of cool detachment but also cool hipness.

Roy Lichtenstein’s style of Pop art was inspired by comic strips, in which he created images through a combination of mechanical reproduction and hand-drawing. He used iconic images and cultural influences to create striking action images, often with captions and onomatopoeic exclamations, much as one would find in comics. This screenprint is from a group of seven Reflections prints and in each, the image is obscured by color and patterns resembling the reflected light as if behind glass. Inspired by trying to photograph a work by Robert Rauschenberg behind glass, Lichtenstein appropriated images from his past and thus brings the appropriation of Pop art full circle.

Richard Tuttle is a seminal American postminimalist artist. Tuttle’s work is conceptual and meditative, crossing the boundary of sculpture, painting, and poetry, and often challenging the viewer. Untitled (Cloth and Paint Work #2) from 1973, a pivotal period in the artist’s career, evokes the earlier minimalism of his career while pushing towards material-based conceptual art. In the work he pays homage to Marcel Duchamp’s readymades. Textiles, as in this piece, play a large role in his oeuvre and become sites on which to focus performance, engagement, and meaning.

Contemporary American artist George Condo coined the term “artificial realism” to characterize the figures that appear in his work – often described as a combination of European Old Master painting and American Pop art. Condo has defined the term as the “realistic representation of that which is artificial.” Known for figures that are often grotesque or fractured, Condo creates art that is both Contemporary and rooted in art historical tradition, drawing inspiration from Cubism or, in this case, reaching back to ancient Greece. In an uncommon work of sculpture, Condo imparts his distinctive style to the face of a Mycenaean archetype, the goddess figure.

Untitled (Hologram Suite) by Louise Bourgeois contains eight individual glass holograms initially created by the artist in 1998 and fully realized in 2014. The imagery includes lovers, chairs, a bell jar, and enclosures. These elements reoccur in many of the artist's installations and are related to her interest in physical and emotional isolation and sexuality. The images recorded within these holograms were created from original Bourgeois sculptures. Encoded on glass and activated by light, the images appear only when illuminated at a particular angle, and they come to life with a red glow.

Pat Steir is a celebrated American painter and printmaker, best known for her Waterfall paintings of dripped, splashed, and poured paint. This large work on paper completed in 1985 is characterized by her usual sense of spontaneity and unpredictability, embracing nature as an active force in art. Recalling the explosive power of waves, the work on paper references the art historical tradition of 19th century artists Ando Hiroshige and Gustave Courbet, re-imagining their previous depictions of the irrepressible sea. This drawing was featured in the Museum of Modern Art’s 1985 exhibition, New Works on Paper 3. Steir’s large wave drawings comprise a distinct body of work from the mid 1980s, after which she began to experiment with the poured canvases that became waterfall paintings.
