It began simply enough: with the wife’s desire to decorate a new home. It lead to an art collection worth $400 million. Now the works have been donated to the Seattle Art Museum.

“It’s a chance to peek at the midcentury art movement not through the eyes of scholars, but the eyes of people who looked carefully and only bought what they loved.” – The Seattle Times

“Frisson: The Richard E. Lang and Jane Lang Davis Collection” opens 10/15 and The Seattle Times is giving the scoop on what viewers can expect. The landmark Lang Collection gift by the Friday Foundation is comprised of 19 outstanding artworks that transform SAM’s holdings of postwar art. 

Lee Krasner’s 1960 work “Night Watch” was painted during a long season of insomnia after several heavy losses, including the death of her husband,  Jackson Pollock. It’s part of SAM’s “Frisson” exhibit. (Spike Mafford / Zocalo Studios)
