The Belle Époque- The Arganbright Collection
Zygman Voss Gallery presents The Belle Époque: an exhibition of the Arganbright collection of 19th century Belle Époque prints, July 27 through the month of August. The exhibition features over 100 museum quality works of the 19th century including etchings, lithographs, and drawings from 15 masters including
The Arganbrights began acquiring their impressive collection in 1997. “We enjoyed the realism of the 19th century masters versus the 20th century abstract art, we then worked to acquire as many of the Belle Époque artists that we loved,” says Mr. Arganbright of his collection. Introduced to the masters of this lively period by knowledgeable mentors, the lifelong appreciation for these historical works of art began. Finding the artists they liked, Mr. and Mrs. Arganbright would eagerly bid on key pieces and thus acquired a prime collection in a short period of time. This collection, The Arganbright collection, will be on display in its entirety for the first time at Zygman Voss Gallery.
