Explores the highly varied interpretations of the American West reflected in the works of 41 noted 20th-century artists, presenting some 50 paintings as well as watercolors and prints that range from Modernist landscapes by O'Keeffe, Hartley and Marin and semi-abstract compositions by Morris and Pollock inspired by Native American iconography to ironic reworkings of cowboy myths by Warhol, Lichtenstein and Grooms.
