Recent Acquisitions

The Gallery is pleased to announce the release of the latest issue of the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin, which focuses on some of the most recent additions to the museum’s collections. Curators discuss a wide array of artworks—from an elegant soup tureen and an important collection of Peruvian antiquities to a Crucifixion by Annibale Carracci and a seventh-century Chinese Buddhist sutra. Gracing the cover of this year’s issue is Saturday Night Bath by Horace Pippin, a self-trained African American artist who captured in this work his humble childhood home in Goshen, New York. Another notable highlight is the only known surviving lithographic stone by Jackson Pollock and its print, Stacking Hay; executed long before Pollock turned to abstraction, the work illustrates the influence of Pollock’s great mentor, Thomas Hart Benton. This year’s “From the Archives” essay focuses on former Gallery director and curator John Marshall Phillips, an American silver expert who also served in the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives division during World War II—a group of museum directors, curators, and scholars, popularized in the 2014 movie The Monuments Men, charged with rescuing artistic masterpieces stolen by the Nazis.
