This beautiful volume documents a historic gift of contemporary art from the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Collection to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The gift, comprising nearly 100 works, includes masterpieces by luminaries such as Ellsworth Kelly and Jasper Johns, exceptional pieces by major British and German artists, and important works of outdoor sculpture, large-scale photography, and video art. All of these works, plus some 70 more from Keith and Katherine Sachs's personal collection, are discussed in detail and beautifully illustrated. In addition to catalogue entries on the objects, the book includes essays on artists represented in depth—Robert Gober, Richard Hamilton, Howard Hodgkin, Johns, Kelly, Brice Marden, Charles Ray, Richard Serra, and Joel Shapiro—written by distinguished scholars. Other texts, including an interview with Keith and Katherine Sachs and a statement authored by them, offer insight into their background as collectors and provide an intimate account of their extraordinary collecting endeavors marked by their lasting association with the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
