MacKinley Helm Collection

Esther Bear Gallery, San­ta Barbara

A distinguished ensemble of Italian, Mexican, English, Irish and French works in all mediums representing a catholic taste as far as style is concerned, these works reflect the selective perception of a noted author and collector. Accumulated over the past 30 years, the collection includes fine examples by Dufy, Rouault, Siqueiros and Merida. Outstanding pictures by lesser known artists such as Emilio Greco, Tancredi and others show Dr. Helm to be a consistently sensitive collector whose activities are guided by personal belief and taste rather than the many other reasons people do this sort of thing. All works in the exhibition are for sale.
