The C.K. Williams, II Collection Drawn from the personal collection of Charles K. Williams II, a distinguished archaeologist and Director Emeritus of the Corinth Excavations of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, this exhibition includes approximately one hundred paintings, sculptures, watercolors, and drawings from the early decades of the twentieth century. Williams has amassed an important collection representing most of the major American artists and movements of the modern period, as well as several works by European masters. This collection is marked by the use of brilliant colors, strong compositional designs, and eccentric images, with an emphasis upon several artists, among them Joseph Stella (1877–1946), Oscar Bluemner (1867–1938), Charles Demuth (1883–1935), and Arthur Dove (1880–1946).
