April 7 – June 23 | Albert Flanagan: The Towering City

For Albert E. Flanagan, John Taylor Arms, and their contemporaries, New York’s skyscrapers were a source of artistic inspiration. Soaring heavenward at heights unimagined by even the most ambitious medieval master mason, these towers to commerce, capitalism, and modernism introduced a new dynamism to the cityscape and the panorama of its skyline. In Albert E. Flanagan: The Towering City, The Hyde Collection displays eighteen works by the New York printmaker that were donated to the Museum by his widow in 1971. In addition, the exhibition will include several prints and published illustrated books by John Taylor Arms.
