Held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown, this year’s event, “Bar 1878: Georgetown After Dark” included cocktails, a high-end silent auction (with trips to Paris, Aspen and Nantucket among the luxury items), a lavish buffet with after-dinner treats, and live music from DC’s favorite BroadSide Sound band.

Gala committee co-chairs Jennifer Altemus, Tricia Huntley and Leslie Maysak mingled as guests indulged in champagne, delicious hors d'oeuvres and a bit of body art. With conversation groups in several ballrooms, friends chatted over dinner.

Gauguin to Picasso: Masterworks from Switzerland at The Phillips Collection

August 30, 2015

The Phillips Collection will be showing Gauguin to Picasso: Masterworks from Switzerland from The Staechelin & Im Obersteg Collections October 10, 2015 - January 10, 2016.

This exhibition focuses on a groundbreaking shift in the development of Swiss collections that occurred in the first decade of the 20th century, as patrons began to look beyond the contributions of regional painters and broaden their definition of modern art.

The exhibition pays tribute to pioneering supporters Rudolf Staechelin (1881–1946) and Karl Im Obersteg (1883–1969), both from Basel, who enthusiastically championed the work of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and School of Paris artists. From their renowned collections, over 60 celebrated paintings created during the mid-19th and 20th centuries by 22 world-famous artists will be on view.

The city of Basel’s vital support for modern art, the approaches of the two collectors—who knew each other personally and developed friendships with artists—and their shared preference for colorful, expressive paintings of figures, still life, and landscape unify these impressive works. This exhibition marks the first occasion for these collections to be exhibited together in the US.
