Wide Angle Lunches: Dave and Reba W. Williams
The Williams' have spent thirty years collecting, studying and, through the Print Research
Foundation, enabling others to study prints by American artists.
In 2009, their collection of more than 5,000 works was acquired by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Ranging from the etching revival to Pop art, American modernists to depression-era and Works Project Administration (WPA) prints, the collection spanning roughly 1875-1975 was "among the largest and finest private collections of American prints in the world".
They continue to own and acquire rare prints, but have now turned to writing - Dave Williams, about print collecting and Reba White Williams, mystery novels set in the art world.
Both graduates of Harvard Business School, Reba Williams studied art history at Hunter College and earned her doctorate from The Graduate Center at the City University of New York.
