Arthur Dove Uses Our Tools

Arthur Dove, Plant Forms, 1911–12

the Arthur Dove Catalogue Raisonné Project
joins the growing number who are using panOpticon tools
to manage their catalogue content

Arthur Dove (1880–1946) is often considered the first American abstract painter. He exhibited his works at Stieglitz’s 291 gallery in 1910 as part of the show “Younger American Painters.” The show, which included a group of Dove’s pastels that came to be known as “The Ten Commandments,” was the first public exhibition of abstract art by an American. In the two years after meeting Stieglitz, Dove became a leader in international art developments. From 1912 to 1946 Dove showed his work annually at Stieglitz’s galleries: 291, Intimate Gallery, and An American Place.

The Arthur Dove Catalogue Raisonné Project is under the direction of Debra Bricker Balken for the Estate of Arthur Dove.

We at panOpticon are extremely proud that the Arthur Dove Catalogue Raisonné Project chose our content management system.
