The Munich Secession and America marks the first exhibition in America in one hundred years dedicated to the renowned Munich Secession movement, which laid the foundation for Modernism in twentieth-century art. Drawing on major loans from European museums and the extensive holdings of the Frye Founding Collection, this exhibition represents two generations of artists: leading Secessionists such as Franz von Stuck, Fritz von Uhde, Ludwig Dill, Max Liebermann, and Hugo von Habermann; and those artists who preceded them and were active in a rival Munich Artists’ Association, the Künstlergenossenschaft, such as Franz von Lenbach, Friedrich August von Kaulbach, Wilhelm Leibl, and Franz von Defregger. Also included in the exhibition are works by a number of the Guest Artists who exhibited with the Munich Secession: Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Pierre August Renoir, Pierre-Étienne-Théodore Rousseau, Alfred Sisley, and Narcisse Virgilio Diaz de la Peña.
