Linda Kaplan Collection
Join ArtTable for a special tour of Linda Lichtenberg Kaplan’s impressive collection. Focusing on American Art between World War I and II, the collection has been carefully honed and edited. It illustrates many of the different phases of American Modernism such as Precisionism, Regionalism, and African American art. Kaplan’s other focus is on American 20th and 21st-century sculptor's drawings, which was promised to the Phillips Collection. Some of the artists represented include Louise Bourgeois, Marsden Hartley, Lee Bontecou, Arthur Dove, and Jose de Rivera.
Linda has been a professional in the art museum world since the early '60s, when she worked at the Corcoran and National Trust for Historic Preservation. Kaplan served as the Head of PR and Special Events at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art for several years and then led a project to place contemporary art in public spaces with developers. In addition, she worked with the 1% for art project sponsored by the city as the Assistant Director of the gallery at the University of Maryland, bought the first corporate collection in Washington for the Cafritz Company and was the first curator for the Artery Organization. She is a board-certified appraiser of 20th century American Art (1900-1980).
