Speaker Series

Explore the history of the de Young and the individuals who have contributed to the collection we enjoy today; individuals who have had the luck to find magnificent pieces of art, the resources to obtain it and the taste to pursue it. Only after living with these art objects do they donate them to the museum.

Using historical photographs of the 1893 Midwinter Fair, as well as images showing the artwork when situated in the collectors’ homes, we will trace the making of a museum and the creation of a collection.
