An American Collection: Gifts to the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts From Babette and Charles Wampold
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

On the evening of the opening of An American Collection Curator Margaret Lynne Ausfeld will lead a brief tour of the exhibition, which features the gifts of Charles and Babette Wampold to the MMFA collections. She will discuss selected artists whose works are represented, including landscape painter George Inness (1825–1894), William Glackens (1870–1938), and Charles Burchfield (1893–1967), placing the Wampold’s paintings into the larger body of the artists’ work. She will also focus on how the Wampold’s gifts have broadened the range of our Museum’s collection of early twentieth-century American art.
