Monterey Museum of Art Announces Major Acquisition of David Ligare’s Magna Fide

July 15, 2020 | Allyson Hitte | Press Room/Blog

The Monterey Museum of Art is pleased to announce the acquisition of David Ligare’s Magna Fide in honor of the artist’s 75th birthday.  The Museum is grateful to the generous donors who made this acquisition possible: Judy and Tom Archibald, Elizabeth Barlow and Stephen McClellan, Linda and David Keaton, Sally Lucas, Judith and Frank Marshall, and Lila and James Thorsen.  Prior to acquiring Magna Fide, the Museum held 16 works by Ligare in various media, but this would be the first large-scale painting in the collection that is a major example of his classically-inspired work. The artist has also donated a preparatory drawing and etching to the Museum so that viewers can experience the full artistic process.
