A second group of works on paper from the Anderson family's collection

September 20, 2018 - February 19, 2019
Jess, The 5th Never of Old Lear, 1974, paper collage elements on 3-D support, 33 ⅛ x 27 15/16 in. Collection of Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson.


The unique works on paper found within Salon Style provide an increasingly rich and diverse view of the artists represented in the Anderson Collection at Stanford University as well as others. These rarely exhibited collages, watercolors, drawings, and paintings open a window into the artists’ varied artistic practices. From the visually complex collages of Wallace Berman and Jess, to the sensual pastel surfaces of Elizabeth Murray, Ed Ruscha, and Jay DeFeo to the dense linear abstractions of Terry Winters, these dynamic works expand one’s understanding of the depth and diversity of these contemporary American artists.
