Selections from the Mary and Michael Tatalovich Collection
Michael and Mary Tatalovich's gift of 80 large-scale American prints affirmed the museum’s focus on works on paper. Their first gift in 1997 of the print Leg by Jasper Johns marked the beginning of a partnership that has included an exhibition, From Warhol to Bartlett in 1998 and subsequent gifts and loans to augment other projects undertaken by the museum. This postwar collection includes many exemplary works by seminal Pop and Minimal artists, alongside exciting works by newer artists.
