Fund an Acquisition
Museum Associates Board of Directors asks for your help in funding
two important new acquisitions for the Museum’s painting collection.
The paintings will be on display at the Paintbrush Ball. During the
live auction portion of the event, patrons will have the opportunity to
commit a pledge of $100, $250, $500 or more. We hope to raise the
purchase price of $9,900 to acquire these wonderful paintings and add
them to the Museum’s collection of Regionalist works.
Jack Keijo Steele (American, 1919—2003)
The Battle of the Overpass
ca. 1938
Oil on Masonite
Purchase Price: $4,500
Jack Keijo Steele, Detroit Michigan, Cranbrook Academy of Art, was a student
of Zoltan Sepeshy. The painting depicts “The Battle of the Overpass,” May 26,
1937, when labor organizers clashed with Ford Motor Company security at the
River Rouge complex in Dearborn, Michigan.
Joseph Paul Vorst (American, 1897–1947)
Untitled (Missouri Landscape)
ca. late 1930s
Oil on canvas backed by Masonite panel
Purchase Price: $5,400
Vorst is a well-known Missouri artist. The Museum has previously shown his
works although we have none in the collection. He’s often classified with the
regionalists, and this work suggests why, although his formal training was in
Berlin under German impressionist Max Liebermann. His works have been
shown at the Art Institute of Chicago and are in the permanent collection of
the Saint Louis Art Museum. Vorst has painted this particular scene more than
once; this is the most engaging version.
