Biographical/Historical note

On October 9, 2012 Stanford University broke ground on the Anderson Collection building, which will house the private art collection of Harry W. Anderson, Mary Margaret Anderson, and Mary Patricia Anderson Pence. The Anderson Collection building is adjacent to the Cantor Arts Center and the McMurtry Building for Art and Art History. The Anderson Gallery is anticipated to open in late 2014.
The Anderson Collection at Stanford will contain 121 works by 86 artists, including some of the foremost examples of post-World War II American art in public and private hands. The collection is anchored in the work of the New York School and key modern and contemporary artists collected in depth, across media. Major movements represented include Abstract Expressionism, Color Field Painting, Post-Minimalism, California Funk Art, Bay Area Figurative Art, Light and Space and contemporary painting and sculpture.
