New Britain, CT.- Until July 3rd 2011 the New Britain Museum of American Art’s McKernan Gallery features ‘An American Odyssey: The Warner Collection of American Art’. The exhibition is composed of works from the personal collection of Jonathan “Jack” Warner and his wife Susan Austin Warner and the collection of The Warner Foundation. Jack Warner started his private collection in the 1950s when he bought a series of prints by John James Audubon (1785-1851). Today the Warner Collection is one of the premiere collections of American art in the world. Warner’s collection reflects his belief in learning American history through art and his passion for America.
