No Place Like Home: American Scene Painting in the Sinquefield Collection features paintings, drawings and lithographs from the private collection of Rex and Jeanne Sinquefield. The exhibition is rich in works by Thomas Hart Benton, Joe Jones, Grant Wood, John Rogers Cox and other prominent artists of the American Scene Painting movement. The exhibition opens with a 6 p.m. reception on Friday, Nov. 15 at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art.
Rex Sinquefield grew up in St. Louis and attended Saint Louis University, where he earned an undergraduate business degree. Today, he is considered one of the top investment gurus in the world. One of the region’s most important civic leaders, he currently serves the University’s Board of Trustees.
Jeanne Sinquefield is widely noted for her long history of supporting organizations that enhance music, art and education, especially for children.
“I see an affirmation of my belief in America and the American dream,” Sinquefield said. “With hard work anything is possible. The lyricism and beauty of the countryside here in Missouri makes that evident every day, and these artists capture that spirit of possibility.”cost
