The earliest examples include Whistler’s sublime Nocturne: Blue and Gold—Old Battersea Bridge (ca. 1872-75), which shifts the bridge from the central focus. It relates to Hiroshige’s famous prints, whose flattened layers, balanced composition, and bold colors felt almost kitschy. Artists I haven’t heard or seen very much of since art history class, like John La Farge, are shown near Georgia O’Keefe, Arthur Dove, and Mary Cassatt. The roll call includes Mark Tobey, Philip Guston, Sam Francis, Isamu Noguchi and his frequent collaborator Martha Graham, and into the recent era with such artists as Agnes Martin, Robert Irwin, Brice Marden, and mavericks Kerouac, Ginsberg, and Ono.
