Post 1950 – Contemporary

This file is especially incomplete because of the difficulty in assessing what works of art from this period, not having had the test of time, to include. Some entries overlap with the 1850-1950 period and may be found in that file. The dates following the artist’s name are often those of his period of greatest creativity, not necessarily those of the artist’s birth and death.
