THE MOUSE HOUSE — Saturday, October 1, 2011 – Saturday, June 30, 2012
Installation view of The Mouse House Works from the Olga Hirshhorn Collection exhibition.
Olga Hirshhorn’s The Mouse House is a treasure trove of intimate-sized artworks from some of the giants of 20th century art – among them Picasso, Calder, Giacometti, de Kooning, O’Keeffe, Dubuffet, Fox and many others. Hirshhorn, a noted collector and part-time Naples resident, is the widow of Joseph Hirshhorn, founding donor of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. This delightful exhibition recreates the environment of Hirshhorn’s art-packed home in Washington, known as “The Mouse House.”
