The Rise of American Modernism, currently on exhibit in the Susan and Charles Golden Gallery at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, highlights the impact that European modernists had on their American counterparts. The avant-garde of French art made inroads into the American mainstream in the first decades of the 20th century largely through the efforts of photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Stieglitz’s 291 Gallery, founded in 1908, introduced the works of Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Paul Cezanne as well as such young Americans as Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Charles Sheeler, Katherine Dreier and Man Ray.
