“TANIS” RETURNS: Daniel Garber’s painting has returned to the Michener Art Museum from its home at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and will remain on view at the Michener through December 30. Philanthropists Marguerite and H. F. Gerry Lenfest presented “Tanis” as a gift to the Philadelphia Museum of Art with the stipulation that the painting be returned on loan to the Michener Art Museum every three years.
In 2011, Philadelphia-area philanthropists Marguerite and H. F. Gerry Lenfest presented Tanis as a gift to the Philadelphia Museum of Art with the stipulation that the painting be returned on loan to the Michener Art Museum for three months every three years. This year marks its second return under that agreement. Marguerite and Gerry Lenfest are longtime supporters of the Michener Art Museum, which is recognized for its world-class collection of Pennsylvania Impressionist paintings — many of them donated to the museum by the Lenfests — as well as its commitment to preserving and presenting the work of other Delaware Valley artists of all eras and creative disciplines. more
