The de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University
Santa Clara, CA
In celebration of the de Saisset Museum's 60th anniversary, De Saisset: From Family Name to Artistic Legacy explores the story of the organization as it grew from the surname of an ambitious young painter to an accredited university museum. Through a selection of photographs, correspondence, and archival records -- in addition to the painted portraits of Ernest de Saisset and Isabel de Saisset -- the exhibition traces key events from Ernest de Saisset's birth in 1864 to the founding of the museum in his honor in 1955.
