The Amarillo Museum of Art organizes an annual exhibition, called Achievement in Art, that honors a significant collector or collection.
This year’s exhibition celebrates the outstanding collection of the late Montgomery H. W. “Montie” Ritchie.
Montie began collecting art in the 1940s and assembled a world class collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings and sculpture. This exhibition is a testament to Montie Ritchie’s thoughtful selections, his keen eye, and his incomparable connoisseurship. The exhibition will include artworks by Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Georges Henri Rouault, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Seurat, and Alfred Sisley. Also included in this exhibition are works by Paul Gauguin, Marc Chagall and Georges Braque, along with American artists John Singer Sargent and Andrew Wyeth.
