SEPTEMBER 17, 2020

Highlights from The Collection of

Jeanne and Carroll Berry

The Jeanne and Carroll Berry Collection, assembled with great care over the past 30 years, includes works by sixteen of the original “Irascible Eighteen.” The Berrys knew “advanced art” when they saw it and collected works by these leading Abstract Expressionists artists ahead of the trend.

 

In 2017 the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia featured the works in an exhibition titled “Advanced and Irascible: Abstract Expressionism from the Collection of Jeanne and Carroll Berry.” Shannon’s will offer 22 works from the collection of Abstract Expressionist artists. The catalog will feature a dedicated section documenting the Jeanne and Carroll Berry Collection.
