Pertaining to Philadelphia: Contemporary Acquisitions from the Julius Bloch Memorial Fund
May 16, 1992 - August 16, 1992
Julius Bloch (1888-1966) was a Philadelphia artist who left a poignant record of the sad spectacle of Depression life and its effect on the working-class poor. For the last decade the Museum has been acquiring the work of Philadelphia artists, primarily young and emerging ones, with a fund created in Bloch's memory under the auspices of the distinguished local collector Benjamin Bernstein. Approximately 60 paintings, drawings and prints by 41 artists ranging in style from super-realism to funk have been acquired; the collection includes work by Italo Scanga, Jody Pinto, Phoebe Adams, Ellen Powell Tiberino, and many others. A selection of these will be on view in Pertaining to Philadelphia: Contemporary Acquisitions from the Julius Bloch Memorial Fund.
