New Acquisitions Featuring the Kaufman Collection

August 8, 2015–July 9, 2017

The Autry in Griffith Park

About the Exhibition

Every work of art has a story to tell. Inspired by the gift of 49 paintings and sculptures from the collection of Loretta and Victor Kaufman, this exhibition highlights recent additions to the Autry’s growing art collections. Discover a powerful selection of works representing diverse peoples and perspectives, including bronzes by Frederic Remington and Allan Houser, paintings by Rick Bartow and Eanger Irving Couse, lithographs by Fritz Scholder, watercolors by David Einstein, and others that reveal a set of dynamic visions of the American West.

Throughout the exhibition, artworks are organized by theme and set alongside statements drawn from individuals, artists, and historic documents that describe aspects of experience and identity in the American West. As these words support, challenge, or complicate the artworks on view, when read together they suggest that a work of art—like any form of representation—does not always tell the whole story.
