Summary
This volume presents a partial catalog of 1930s and 1940s era abstract works that are in the art collection of J. Donald Nichols. Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. This art collection was on exhibition at the Wake Forest University Fine Arts Gallery, Winston-Salem, NC in the late 1990s. Familiar artists Willem de Kooning, Josef Albers, Arshile Gorky, and Stuart Davis are all included here. Artists in the collection are from diverse socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds. Women artists are quite strongly represented in the collection, including Russian born Esphyr Slobodkina. The J. Donald Nichols Collection is now recognized as perhaps the finest collection of American abstract art of the 1930s and 1940s ever assembled
