Drawn from the Museum’s collection, this exhibition demonstrates the profound and continuing connection between nature and the modern and contemporary artists. It focuses first on the 1950s, when many artists, such as Helen Frankenthaler and Tony Smith, returned to nature for inspiration; continues with the work of Jean Dubuffet and Agnes Martin; and ends with the 1990s work of Anish Kapoor and John Cage.
