Collector's Choice: Samuel Blatt Collection

Selections on view at 600 N. Woodland Blvd.
On extended loan to permanent collection

Collector’s Choice: Samuel Blatt Collection features more than 60 outstanding European paintings, drawings and prints from the mid-19th to the early 20th century. More than 20 artists, such as Picasso, Dufy, Lacombe and Vuillard, will be represented. All of the creators in Mr. Blatt’s personal collection are unique because each one makes a visual statement of quite his or her own making.  They have sought art and quality by following no set path and chose to select carefully their own very private way between complex clusters of alternatives.  They produced, as a result, art of profound individuality, honesty and quality. A well-chosen collection of a single work adds to its own light that reflected from the masterpieces among which it was found. For the collector, possessing such art allows him to participate quietly with artists of extraordinary integrity and vision in their day-by-day creative activity of trying to contact the divine, and to benefit, thereby, from their lifelong devotion to a particular inspiration and ideal.
