The extensive collection is made up of pieces by primarily self-taught and contemporary artists including: Joseph Albers, James Castle, Rackstraw Downes, Red Grooms, Alison Hall, Stanley Lewis, Catherine Maize, Sangram Majumdar, Claes Oldenburg, Nellie Mae Rowe, E.M. Saniga, Beatrice Scaccia, Judith Scott, Leopold Strobl, Sam Szafran, Bill Traylor, and Purvis Young, as well as additional pieces on loan from the Louis-Dreyfus Family Collection. There are over 200 artists featured in the Foundation’s collection, all collected by its benefactor, the late William Louis-Dreyfus, father of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
William Louis-Dreyfus, who died in 2016, was a French-American lawyer and businessman who began collecting art as a young man. He often sought to meet artists on his travels throughout the US and around the globe. Louis-Dreyfus was fascinated by self-taught “Outsider” artists who typically had no formal training and often had to use found materials for their artistic practice. The mission of the Foundation is to educate the public about the importance of art and to increase public awareness of self-taught and emerging artists.
