A 70-year odyssey of collecting
I’m amazed by their collecting journey, their enthusiasm and their generosity,” says Austen Barron Bailly, The George Putnam Curator of American Art. “We’re honored that the Robbins family celebrates PEM as the ideal museum for sharing these American paintings with a wide public. This really is a landmark gift, because so many of the artists and subjects are not yet represented at the museum. Now with our expanded holdings we can develop new projects and continue to build our American art collection.
