Roy Neuberger -- founder of the investment and wealth management firm, Neuberger Berman -- is one of the legendary collectors of 20th-century American art. Living in Paris, in the 1920s, he "resolved to go back to America, to make a fortune and to buy the work of unknown living artists." And he did just that, starting in 1938 with the purchase of two paintings by Peter Hurd (step-brother of artist Andrew Wyeth). From then his passion and his eye led him from one undiscovered talent to the next. Neuberger never sold his earlier acquisitions: instead he donated hundreds of paintings to museums including the one that bears his name at the State University of New York at Purchase. In 1990, Neuberger Berman -- in the spirit of its founder -- used company funds to establish its own collection of works by emerging artists and from these the present exhibition of about 60 examples has been selected: displayed are works by Michael Bevilacqua, Willie Cole, Karin Davie, Inka Essenhigh, Vik Muniz, Thomas Struth, and many others.
This exhibition is sponsored by Neuberger Berman.
