FORT WORTH, Texas — The Amon Carter Museum of American Art (the Carter) today announced the acquisition of more than 240 photographs and works on paper that significantly expand the Museum’s renowned photography and works on paper holdings. A bequest from the estate of Texas economist, entrepreneur, and collector Finis Welch, who passed away in 2020, the gift includes prints by Ansel Adams, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and more, which together greatly strengthen the Carter’s ability to tell the story of early photographic modernism in America. Works on paper by Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Lewis Rubenstein, and Rufino Tamayo add dimension to existing collection holdings by these artists, while three works by abstract expressionist Robert Motherwell are the first prints by the artist to enter the collection.
