Hershel Lippmann began collecting art while living in New Orleans. He commissioned an original watercolor from a friend and from that his real interest in art developed. Years later, he moved to Mississippi and was introduced to the works of local artists, many of which are represented in his collection and he expanded his collection to include oil paintings purchased during his travels to galleries in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California.
The works chosen for this exhibition are only a small part of Mr. Lippmann’s collection of realistic and expressionistic art. They are a diverse group of paintings that provide a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people engaged in everyday activities, or feature still lifes and landscapes of scenes in which people go about their daily routines.
