The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, TX is celebrating the American art collection of the Halff’s, long-time friends and clients of Spanierman Gallery. The exhibition, An Impressionist Sensibility: The Halff Collection, will be on view from February 3-May 9, 2010. Here are a few words from the museum’s website:
We are pleased to begin the new year with a remarkable private collection of American paintings of the Impressionist era formed by San Antonians Marie and Hugh Halff. The 26 paintings in their collection are notable for both their range and quality and include superb examples by leading masters of the period from the 1870s to 1930.
Although their collection is not large, it is characterized by a surprising depth. Key artists, among them John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, and Theodore Robinson are represented by multiple works.
