Abstract (English)

This selection from the Davidson Collection comprises sixty "classics" in international art produced since 1958. Primarily dedicated to the American Avant-Garde, it also exemplifies the resurgence of figurative painting in the 1980's. Strategies and motivations in collecting contemporary art are discussed; overall this is a testament to the family's commitment to art and involvement with the AGO.
