New Acquisitions at the CMA!

This September, the CMA has acquired a number of new pieces to be housed in its permanent collection!

Recent acquisitions by the Cleveland Museum of Art include Surrealist André Masson’s Paysage au serpent (Landscape with Snake), a rare example of the artist’s automatic painting technique; a new, monumental drawing by leading contemporary artist Kara Walker; and a photograph by Shirin Neshat, an artist who creates still photographs, videos and films that explore gender roles in post-revolutionary Iran.

See below for images of the recently acquired works. To read more about these stunning pieces, see the press release here.
