Last month, the DMA acquired an impressive work by the Guyanese-born British painter Frank Bowling. The painting, Marcia H Travels, is from Bowling’s influential Map Painting series, which he created in the 1970s. This February, the DMA’s painting, along with four additional Map Painting works from private collections, will be reunited for the first time since their debut in 1971 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in the DMA-organized exhibition Frank Bowling: Map Paintings.
