The nucleus of the Tucson Museum of Art’s collection of Modern art was formed in 1976 when the Lawrence J. Heller Foundation donated 92 works created by American and European Modernists. Currently containing over 400 works, this collection includes works ranging from Surrealism to early Abstract Expressionism, by notable artists such as William Baziotes, Arthur Dove, Marsden Hartley, Jacques Lipchitz, Marino Marini and Jack Tworkov. The history of the region is also represented with works by Tucson modernists Harrison Moore, Mark Voris, and James Powell Scott. In addition, noteworthy international artists in the collection include Marcel Janco, a principal founder of the Dada Movement, Neo-Romanticist, Leonid Berman, and German Expressionist Erich Heckel.
