Pursuit of Beauty: The May Family Collection offers a look at the exemplary Dallas-based collection of American art that was built over nearly 60 years by Thomas and Eleanor May and their children Christopher, Sterling, Meredith, and Laura. Twenty-four works, whose dates span approximately a century, touch historical and aesthetic highpoints in American art and are united by a visual sense of harmony, tranquility, and beauty. The exhibition features oil paintings, watercolors, and sculpture by influential artists, including Cecilia Beaux, William Merritt Chase, Winslow Homer, and John Singer Sargent.
