In 2014, The Figure Examined: Masterworks from the Kasser Mochary Art Foundation broke the Museum’s attendance record. Many of the best-loved works from that exhibition will be on display in this new exhibition of selections from this important collection.
The exhibition features more than 50 works of art by Modern masters, including Jean Arp, Andre Derain, Alberto Giacometti, Fernand Léger, Jacques Lipchitz, Marino Marini, Marisol, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Larry Rivers, Auguste Rodin, Niki de Saint Phalle, Alfred Sisley, Victor Vasarely, and Andy Warhol. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Julie Sasse, Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art and Joanne Stuhr, Curator of the Kasser Mochary Art Foundation.
The Kasser Mochary Art Foundation was founded in 1968 by Alexander and Elisabeth Kasser with the mission of inspiring and promoting appreciation of the fine arts. The primary focus of the Foundation is to lend significant works of art to regional museums from its holdings of important nineteenth and twentieth century European and American art. The Foundation is based in Vienna, Austria; Montclair, New Jersey; and Tucson, Arizona.
TMA is grateful for the generous support of I. Michael and Beth Kasser and Tucson Museum of Art Contemporary Art Society.
