Modern & Contemporary

The Montclair Art Museum’s collection of modern and contemporary art ranges from major works by such early 20th-century artists as George Bellows, Arthur Dove, Elsie Driggs, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Maurice Prendergast, and Joseph Stella, to significant examples by leading contemporary artists Gregory Crewdson, Barbara Kruger, James Siena, Kay WalkingStick, Carrie Mae Weems, and others. A bequest by artist Moses Soyer and his wife, Ida, greatly augmented the modern collection in 1974 with more than one 100 works by Chaim Gross, Raphael Soyer, Ben Shahn, Reginald Marsh, Phillip Evergood, and others. In 1985 the Museum became a major repository for the paintings, drawings, notebooks, and personal papers of Morgan Russell, a cofounder in 1912–13 of Synchromism, the first American modernist art movement, which stressed the potent role of color. Works by Robert Motherwell, Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, Adolph Gottlieb, William Baziotes, Steve Wheeler, Kenzo Okada, Norman Lewis, Milton Avery, George Rickey, Richard Diebenkorn, and others exemplify the strengths of the Museum’s collection of art of the 1940s and 50s. Highlights of the collection representing the decades of the 1960s through the 80s include works by Andy Warhol, Louise Nevelson, Tony Smith, Josef Albers, Romare Bearden, Dennis Oppenheim, George Segal, Alice Neel, Philip Guston, George McNeil, Melvin Edwards, and Richard Anuskiewicz. In recent years the Museum has demonstrated its growing commitment to contemporary art with the acquisition of works by Chuck Close, Kiki Smith, Ryan McGinley, Alex Prager, Chakaia Booker, Charles Simonds, Vik Muniz, and others. A major gift in 2008 of works from the Herbert and Dorothy Vogel collection greatly augmented the Museum's modern and contemporary holdings with paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Will Barnet, Robert Barry, Lynda Benglis, Richard Hunt, Richard Tuttle, and many others.

Native American Collection

The Native American collection was initiated by Mrs. Henry Lang, one of the founders of MAM. It represents the cultural development of various peoples from the seven major culture areas in the United States--the Northwest Coast, California, the Southwest, the Plains, the Woodlands, the Southeast, and the Arctic. With more than 4,000 objects, the collection has particularly distinguished examples of basketry and jewelry. Contemporary artists such as Dan Namingha, Tony Abeyta, Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, and Allan Houser are represented as well. Native American artists and artisans are frequent visitors to the Museum, offering talks and demonstrations.
