Featured Description (from the owner)
On Friday, September 11 watch “The Collector,” a film presented online by the Housatonic Museum of Art, and prepare to be amazed at the enormity of famed New York City gallery owner Allan Stone’s personal collection. Floor to ceiling, his home is bursting with treasures from his more than 50 years of collecting.
Produced and directed by his daughter, Olympia Stone, the film explores her father’s journey through the world of art from the 1950s to 2006, and how he turned his obsession into his profession. Paintings by Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Barnett Newman and Wayne Thiebaud, and sculptures by César, Arman, John Chamberlain, James Grashow and David Beck only merely scratch the surface of his vast collection.
The film is part of an exceptional online, art-inspired film series presented by Housatonic Museum of Art and curated by the Connecticut Film Festival, and will go online at 7pm on Friday, September 11. A question and answer session with Olympia Stone will follow the film. Visit www.HousatonicMuseum.org for the film link.
