The Art Collection

The Art Collection of the Hecht Museum consists of two principal groups. The first, and larger group, includes many of the major aspects and styles of French painting from 1830-1930. The second group consists of Jewish art from the mid-19th to early 20th century. These two groups, of Frence and Jewish artists, clearly reflect two principal interests of the late Dr. Reuben Hecht.
