A Gift to Glasgow from New York:
The Phillip A. Bruno Collection
18 October 2019 – 12 January 2020
Hunterian Art Gallery
This exhibition celebrates the gift of over 70 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints, from Phillip A. Bruno.
The collection was formed over 70 years during a long and illustrious career in New York, where Bruno worked as director of several prominent contemporary art galleries.
Bruno was born in Paris, studied art history at Columbia University, then embarked on a career working with artists. Manhattan is a truly international art centre, and while many of the figures Bruno dealt with were New Yorkers, he also had a special interest in European, primitive and oceanic art, as well as painters from the American West Coast. The Hunterian exhibition coincides with his 90th birthday.
