The Neuberger Museum of Art, located at the heart of SUNY Purchase College, is a vital cultural resource of modern, contemporary, and African art for Westchester County, NY, and beyond. From the mid-century American and African art that form the collection's core to the presentation of contemporary art, the museum continues the commitment of founding patron Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010) by championing the art of our time.
The Assembly Line (with By-Products from a Mechanical Trance) is part of Oppenheim’s “Factory Series,” in which elaborate systems of industrial imagery become metaphors for mental activity, giving physical form to creative impulses and other cerebral processes. His work encompasses both the compulsive manufacture of notions and the cathartic alchemy of inspiration when ideas become artwork and transfer the artist’s meaning to another’s mind.
A Special Look: Louis Michel Eilshemius
The largest body of work by a single artist in the Neuberger Museum of Art’s collection is by Louis Michel Eilshemius, who is represented by more than a hundred paintings, watercolors, and drawings.
This exhibit features a focused group of works created by the artist between 1874 and 1909 that reflect his academic training and interest in the longstanding European tradition of landscape painting. Like many of his predecessors from the nineteenth century, Eilshemius traveled throughout Europe and made several journeys to distant countries. His works were created both “en plein air,” and in his studio after images from his sketchbook.
