Annual Exhibition photographs by Year
The Annual Exhibitions brought together the best examples of American painting and sculpture,and enabled patrons to follow intelligently the various movements of modern and contemporary art. PAFA students in particular, could study the technical methods by which the art of the day was achieving its results.
Photographs in this collection include study photographs of exhibited works of art submitted to PAFA or created by PAFA for research and documentation purposes. Collection also includes installation photography of Annual Exhibitions.
It was impractical for all art works exhibited during PAFA's Annual Exhibition to be documented using photography. Art works found in this digital collection simply indicates the art works that were photographed during PAFA's Annual Exhibition. As a result, if your search yields zero results, that does not necessarily mean the artist did not exhibit at PAFA. It just means we do not have photographic evidence in our collection.
