The Artist’s Hand: Selections from The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation

From August 6 – October 30, 2022, The Artist’s Hand: Selections from The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation brings together a curated selection of work in different media by seventy artists from one of the most progressive and idiosyncratic collections in the United Stated. Amassed over a period of more than fifty years and spanning time periods and continents, The William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation is a testament to Louis-Dreyfus’s aesthetic intuition, curiosity and passion for collecting on a personal level.

The Artist’s Hand presents a comprehensive look at the collector’s compelling vision through the lens of his interest in the artist’s virtuous creative process. Intrigued by the desire to assimilate the visual language and technique of the artists he collected, Louis-Dreyfus amassed a collection that highlights the conversations between the works of trained and untrained artists, giving voice to those who were unjustly underrepresented in the art historical cannon.
