A Collector's Vision

In 2002, an anonymous American collector generously donated more than six hundred original artworks to The Kinsey Institute. This exhibition features more than 50 pieces from this significant collection, including paintings, prints, and drawings by known and anonymous European artists working in the late eighteenth through mid-twentieth century.

Édouard Chimot (1880-1959), France; Untitled, mid 20th century; Etching; 2002.16.118. Donated in 2002.

Unlike most Kinsey Institute exhibitions that display artworks acquired from a wide variety of sources, this show provides visitors with the opportunity to view a unique collection that reflects the connoisseurship of a single individual.

Featured artists include Suzanne Ballivet, Franz von Bayros, Louis-André Berthommé de Saint-André, Charles Chaplin, Édouard Chimot, Jean Cocteau, Dominique Vivant Denon, Jules Pascin, and Fédor Rojankovsky (aka Rojan).

The exhibition is in the Kinsey Institute Gallery from April 9 to September 3, 2010.

The Kinsey Institute Gallery is open 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm weekdays or by appointment. Admission is free. Visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. The Kinsey Institute Gallery is located in Indiana University’s Morrison Hall, 1165 E. Third Street (behind Memorial Hall), Bloomington, IN. 812-855-7686.
