The exhibit at the LACMA runs November 9 through February 1, 2009 and shows Hearst's wide range of collecting interests. He had large collections of armor, silver and Renaissance tapestries as well as paintings by Boucher, Copley, van Dyck, Fragonard, Gérôme, Greuze, Lawrence, Lotto, Reynolds, and Vouet, with sculptures by Canova, Clodion, Marin, Sansovino, and Thorvaldsen. His collection of three hundred Native American textiles also showed a collector who was a bit ahead of his time. The pieces in the exhibit came from Hearst Castle as well from museums around the world. A book of the exhibition, shown at right, sells for $50.
