Collector John Axelrod">
Collector John Axelrod Collector John Axelrod MFA Adds African American Art Sixty-seven works by African American artists have recently been acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), from collector John Axelrod, an MFA Honorary Overseer and long-time supporter of the Museum. It was made possible with the support of Axelrod and the MFA's Frank B. Bemis Fund and Charles H. Bayley Fund. Axelrod has also donated his extensive research library of books about African American artists to the Museum, as well as funds to support scholarship. "John has been a great friend of the MFA, and I extend my thanks to him for making these works available for our many visitors to enjoy." Assembled by Axelrod over the course of 15 years, the collection is regarded as one of the finest holdings of American art by African American artists. "For a great collection of American art, you must include these important artists," explained John Axelrod."I buy what I love, and I'm particularly pleased to be able to share my passion for these works with a wider audience." "These important works from John Axelrod's collection greatly enhance the MFA's Art of the Americas holdings, allowing us to tell the broader story of American art," said Elliot Bostwick Davis, John Moors Cabot Chair of the Art of the Americas Department.
