Time Capsule: Art of the Forties is planned as one of Childs Gallery’s last exhibitions at its 169 Newbury Street location, before moving to 168 Newbury. Looking forward to the gallery’s next chapter has inspired us to reflect on the past. With Time Capsule we take a look back at the decade that saw the gallery’s last change of address: the 1940s.
Time Capsule: Art of the Forties provides a snapshot of a decade of transition in American art. Drawn from Childs Gallery’s holdings, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, and prints of the period and includes examples of Regionalism, Social Realism, Abstraction, and Expressionism. The exhibition also features work by many of the gallery’s longest represented artists who were working during the decade, such as Herbert Barnett, Jason Berger, Henry Botkin, Bernard Brussel-Smith, Donald De Lue, Molly Luce, Ben Norris, Anne Powers, and Dudley Vaill Talcott.
