The avant-garde sculptor Elie Nadelman (1882-1946) is widely recognized for his elegant, modernist works. Less familiar is the pioneering folk art collection he established with his wife, an impressive trove of some 15,000 objects that was purchased by the New-York Historical Society in 1937. The Folk Art Collection of Elie and Viola Nadelman will celebrate their extraordinary trove with the first major examination of the collection. N-YHS’s holdings will be exhibited alongside loans of key Nadelman sculptures to illuminate the intersection between folk art and modernism.
