Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney: Sculpture is the catalogue for an exhibition presented at the Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, Florida, January 25–April 29, 2018; Planting Fields Foundation, Oyster Bay, New York, June 9–September 30, 2018; and the Newport Art Museum, Newport, Rhode Island, April 7–July 7, 2019. The show is the first devoted to the artist’s works since the Whitney Museum of American Art’s memorial exhibition in 1943.

Although Whitney is now best known as the founder of that museum, during her lifetime she was better known as a sculptor, receiving major commissions and exhibiting throughout the United States and Europe. This show and catalogue highlight the remarkable variety of Whitney’s work—from her earliest classical sculptures to her more symbolic public monuments, from her bleakly Realist depictions of the tragedy of World War I to her late Art Deco work.
