Joseph Jeffers Dodge Collection

The Joseph Jeffers Dodge Collection comprises 230 paintings, drawings, and photographs by the artist acquired by gift, bequest, and purchase. Together they constitute a comprehensive survey of Dodge’s artistic development. The earliest works in the collection document Dodge’s self-training as an artist through the emulation of work created by artists he admired, including Picasso. Mature works reflect strong interests in Surrealism, the figure, jazz subjects, landscape, and still life. Through his work, Dodge established an enduring reputation as a talented American realist artist.
