This exhibition is drawn from the museum’s holdings, this installation positions Hollywood icon George Montgomery’s own hand-crafted furniture and bronze sculptures with his collection of traditional Western paintings by such masters as Sydney Laurence, Frank Tenney Johnson, and Joseph Henry Sharp, alongside modernist design by Albert Frey and abstract art as seen in paintings by Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg. The confluence of historical and modern styles reflects a postwar spirit filled with both nostalgia and optimism.
