One of America’s foremost art dealers, Richard Gray, and his wife, art historian Mary L. Gray, have amassed an unparalleled collection of paintings, drawings, and sculpture representing seven hundred years and featuring more than 115 dynamic and important pieces. Showcased in this stunning catalogue are Renaissance- and Baroque-era treasures, 19th-century works by masters such as Delacroix, Degas, and Seurat, and stellar examples by acclaimed 20th-century artists including Picasso, Matisse, and Miró.

Suzanne Folds McCullagh presents a brief introduction to the collection, followed by Lawrence Weschler’s interview with Richard and Mary L. Gray and entries by more than 60 experts on the various pieces of art. French drawings scholar François Borne offers an appreciation of the keen visual sensibilities the couple has brought to the formation of their outstanding collection.

Suzanne Folds McCullagh is the Anne Vogt Fuller and Marion Titus Searle Curator of Earlier Prints and Drawings at the Art Institute of Chicago. Lawrence Weschler is artistic director of the Chicago Humanities Festival and director of the New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU.
