In 2016, Indianapolis will celebrate not only the bicentennial but also the 70th anniversary of the death of native son Booth Tarkington. A former trustee of the John Herron Art Museum and a dedicated art collector, Tarkington and, later, his widow were important benefactors of the IMA.  "A Gentleman Collector from Indiana: Portraits from the Collection of Booth Tarkington" will focus on Tarkington'€™s interest in the human face, a subject he wrote about extensively. The show will feature the writer's published and unpublished commentary on his paintings,€“ as found in his correspondence with artists, dealers, and other collectors,€“ as well as his broader thoughts on the power of portraiture.
