Bowdoin College Museum of Art


These exhibitions could not have been possible without the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation.

The Yale University Art Gallery provided not only the inspiration and resources for these exhibitions through their collection-sharing initiative, but also the dedication, scholarship, and helpfulness of their professional staff, including: Jock Reynolds, Henry J. Heinz II Director; Pamela Franks, Deputy Director for the Collections and Education; Kate Ezra, Bradley Senior Associate Curator of Academic Affairs; Helen A. Cooper, Holcombe T. Green Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture; Suzanne Boorsch, Robert L. Solley Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs; Lisa Hodermarsky, Sutphin Family Associate Curator of Paints, Drawings, and Photographs; Jennifer Gross, Seymour H. Knox, Jr. Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art; Patricia Sherwin Garland, Senior Painting Conservator; Theresa Fairbanks Harris, Chief Conservator of Works on Paper; and Lynne Addison, Registrar.

The scope of these exhibitions was enhanced by the loan of additional works from other museums and galleries. Form the Colby College Museum of Art, assistance was provided by Sharon Corwin, Carolyn Muzzy Director and Chief Curator; Elizabeth Finch, Lunder Curator of America Art; and Patricia King, Assistant Director for Administration and Collections Management. From the Portland Museum of Art, we thank director Mark Bessire and Tom Denenberg, William E. and Helen E. Thon Curator of American Art and Chief Curator. We also thank James Christen Steward, director of the Princeton University Art Museum, and Laura M. Giles, curator of prints and drawings.
