"American Visions: Journeys Through Art, Act One: 20th
Century Art from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection is both impressive and
engrossing. One hundred and eighty-five 20th-century American paintings,
sculptures, and drawings from The Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, New
York, are displayed in this elegantly designed title, which documents the most
frenzied period in America's artistic life as seen by millionaire collector
Neuberger. Particular emphasis is given to Neuberger's favorite painter Milton
Avery, but there's also plenty of material on most of the important American
art movements and groups prior to Pop, such as social realism and abstract
expressionism. Period art criticism, photos, and an extended video interview
with Neuberger provide fascinating context for the works, but no magnified
details or high-resolution images are included. It's just filled with great art
you won't find on another disc."
