No Place Like Home: American Scene Painting in the Sinquefield Collection

May 10, 2014October 19, 2014

This exhibition features a selection of twenty paintings from the private collection of Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield, a St. Louis couple devoted to art of the American Midwest made between the World Wars. With distinctive tastes and discerning eyes, the Sinquefields have built an extraordinary collection that conveys the importance of this region in the national story of American art.

The exhibition includes work by the famed Regionalists Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, and Grant Wood, as well as paintings by John Atherton, Joe Jones, and John Rogers Cox, who like their more celebrated colleagues, interpreted the reality of the heartland with passion, vigor, and poignancy.
