Art Of The American West
The Haub family, wealthy German supermarket chain owners, summered in Tacoma near Mt. Rainier for years, forming a relationship with the Tacoma
Art Museum that led to the donation of their extensive collection of historic and contemporary art dealing with the American West. TAM has lent 75 artworks, including treasures by Yellowstone School master Albert Bierstadt; Europeans Karl Bodmer, Carl Kauba, and Carl Rungius; along with Georgia O’Keeffe and Robert Henri as well as noted Asian-Americans and Native Americans.
