"We have spent the last decade immersed in the world of American art, never suspecting early on that our desire to learn and appreciate this legacy could result in so meaningful a commitment to Virginia."—James W. McGlothlin

Private Passion, Public Promise: The James W. and Frances G. McGlothlin Collection of American Art commemorates the McGlothlins’ plan to bequeath their splendid collection of American art to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Featuring such artists as George Wesley Bellows, Robert Blum, William Merritt Chase, Childe Hassam, Martin Johnson Heade, Robert Henri, Winslow Homer, George Luks, John Singer Sargent, and James McNeill Whistler, this handsome catalogue is a fitting tribute celebrating the opening of the VMFA’s historic expansion, and the treasures to be found in the James W. and Frances G. McGlothlin Wing.
