Humble and Human: An Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery, in partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts, is proud to present this exhibition in honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., a philanthropist, business leader, and advocate for the citizens of Western New York and Southeast Michigan—regions he called home.  Humble and Human has been organized in recognition of his enduring compassion and goodwill toward others. During his lifetime, he amassed a small but impressive collection of paintings by Impressionist artists. Mr. Wilson saw in the works of these late nineteenth-century avant-gardists—especially those of Monet—reflections of the values and ideas that were close to his own heart: the celebration of simple pleasures and ordinary people.
