To support a 2011 symposium and August 2010–August 2012 loan of George Tooker’s painting Highway from the Terra Foundation’s collection. The symposium focuses on a group of American artists, including George Tooker, Peter Blume, and Ivan Albright, who used a realist mode of representation to transform the symbolic language of Old Master painting into a contemporary idiom. This loan and grant developed from the Terra Foundation’s plan to place fragile works of art from its collection on view in partner museums.
