Showcasing works by major German artists in St. Lawrence University’s permanent collection, alongside select works from the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester and the Picker Art Gallery at Colgate University, German Modernism: Sound and Vision presents a range of aesthetic styles and movements from early twentieth-century German modernism, such as naturalism, expressionism, abstraction, and Neue Sachlichkeit or New Objectivity. Recognizing the under-representation of women artists during this era, works by Käthe Kollwitz figure prominently in the exhibition.
