In the first half of the twentieth century, many artists experimented with new forms of expression that resisted a secular understanding of the world rooted in rationality and scientific reason. The Pursuit of Abstraction presents works of fine and decorative art that seek to reenchant the modern age through spirituality and mystical experience, drawing on the holdings of The Wolfsonian–FIU, The Jeri L. Wolfson Collection, and The Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. Collection of Decorative and Propaganda Arts Promised Gift. #PursuitofAbstraction @wolfsonian
The exhibition is made possible by Funding Arts Network, Inc. and Northern Trust.
