Boone and George-Ann Knox, Rachel Cosby Conway, Alfred Heber Holbrook, Charles B. Presley Family and Lamar Dodd Galleries

Designed as a parallel exhibition to “Coming Home: American Paintings, 1930–1950, from the Schoen Collection,” which the Georgia Museum of Art organized with the Mobile Museum of Art in 2003, “The American Scene on Paper” includes works by many of the same artists and addresses much of the same subject matter, from portrayals of the plight of the American farm laborer to the development of industry and the growth of the urban environment. Smaller versions of this exhibition traveled to the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, S.C., and to the Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus, Ga., in 2009. All 153 works, featured in the companion exhibition catalogue, will be on view for the first time at the Georgia Museum of Art.

The companion exhibition catalogue can be purchased online here.
