Press Release

España: American Artists And The Spanish Experience represents Hollis Taggart Galleries' ongoing exploration of relatively undocumented but highly important aspects in the study of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century art of this country. This exhibition continues our investigation into influences from abroad. This gallery's constant theme of choice has been the Modernist movements propelled by American avant-garde ideologies.
