In the Eye of the Storm: An Art of Conscience, 1930-1970 : Selections from the Collection of Philip J. & Suzanne Schiller
The Schiller Collection of social commentary art is unequaled in America. Cohesive in theme and monumental in scope, it consists of over five hundred works that reflect the tumultuous years that rocked our nation's history between 1930 and 1970: the Great Depression, World War II, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Vietnam War. The Eye of the Storm highlights seventy-one of the paintings, drawings, and prints, collected by Philip J. and Suzanne Schiller over the past twenty years. The works in this volume embrace an astounding range of styles and subject matter. These range from social realism to magic realism and social surrealism by such masters as Ben Shahn, Philip Evergood, Jack Levine, Moses Soyer, Jacob Lawrence, Ivan Albright, Romare Bearden, Jared French, George Grosz, Rockwell Kent, Peter Saul and George Tooker, among others. By Frances K. Pohl.
