American Reflections: The Collection of Dr. Timothy McLaughlin
Past Exhibition Catalogue September 10, 2010 - October 24, 2010
A gem of Northeastern art. Former Chairman of the Board of Trustees Dr. Timothy McLaughlin has collected art for the last two decades.
In the past exhibition American Reflections: The Collection of Dr. Timothy McLaughlin, over forty paintings, sculptures, and works on paper were on view, many for the first time in a museum. McLaughlin’s collection is unique in its focus on Connecticut and the region. With works by major Hudson River School artists such as Frederick Kensett and Asher B. Durand, and American Impressionist masters such as Childe Hassam and Henry Ward Ranger, this collection is truly a gem of Northeastern art. Furthermore, Dr. McLaughlin has key examples by contemporary artists, such as Sol LeWitt and Graydon Parrish, which bring this collection into the twenty-first century. This catalogue aims to show how various artists over the past two centuries have been inspired by and reflecting on the landscapes, people, and cities of our region.
