"El Rancho McNay: Animals in the Collection"
Animals of all types have long called the McNay home. When the property was a working farm, goats and other livestock grazed on the landscape. After Marion Koogler McNay built her Sunset Hills residence, peacocks occupied the gardens and dogs roamed the patio. It is not surprising that animals also populate the McNay’s Permanent Collection. Inspired by the recent acquisition of Luis Jiménez’s monumental lithograph, Alligator, "El Rancho McNay: Animals in the Collection" includes images of animals in a range of media—from etchings of dogs on the McNay patio in 1930 by Mary Bonner to Richard Armendariz’s large woodcut Red Saturn and His Children from 2016. Other artists represented are the Bay Area master printmaker Beth van Hoesen, Chicano pioneer Frank Romero, Modern master Pablo Picasso, and Raoul Dufy, a favorite of Mrs. McNay.
