Manager of Public and Volunteer Programs
Apparently questions about the Lindberg family have been fairly common at the front desk lately, so it might be useful for docents and school tour educators to be aware of this, too.
The Lindberg Collection
More than forty paintings and drawings from the estate of Mr. and Mrs. W. Hilding Lindberg were bequeathed to Tacoma Art Museum in 1983. The Lindberg Collection is comprised primarily of French and German paintings from the second half of the nineteenth century. It includes landscapes, seascapes, still lifes, portraits, and genre scenes by such notable artists as Eugène Louis Boudin, Edgar Hilaire Degas, Henri Fantin-Latour, Camille Pissarro, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Adolf Schreyer, and Karl Spitzweg. Among these are visitor favorites such as Renoir’s oil painting Heads of Two Young Girls (also known as The Two Sisters ), and Degas’ Dancers, a fan-shaped painting on silk. In 1995, the museum acquired two of Degas’ bronze sculptures of dancers because of their relationship to this painting.
