"Captain Strout’s House," created by Edward Hopper with  opaque and transparent watercolor over graphite on wove paper in 1927, is among the works on display at the Figge beginning today.

"American Moderns on Paper: Materworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Ar" opens today at the Figge Art Museum, 225 W. 2nd St., Davenport.

The third- and fourth-floor galleries will display the development of American art during the early 20th century.

The exhibition features 87 works by 44 artists, created between 1902-1962 and ranging in style from the urban realism of John Sloan to the pioneering abstractions of Arthur Dove. Signature works by American masters such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper, as well as works by lesser-known, but influential artists such as Peggy Bacon and William Baziotes will be on view, according to a news release from the Figge.

It will be on display through Sept. 20.
