Philip Evergood's

RICHMOND, VA.- American artist Philip Evergood's 1936 oil on canvas "Street Corner" is among many significant works acquired recently by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, VMFA, in preparation for its grand opening May 1. The painting is the first major Depression-era Urban Realist canvas to enter the collection and was painted in the same year VMFA opened its doors. Also added to the collection is Italian artist Pio Fedi's plaster study for "The Sacrifice of Polyxena," circa 1885; "Mirror with Three-light Sconce," an American work dating from circa 1800-1820; and an array of additional American, European, Asian and African works.
