Ambassador John Work Garrett and his wife Alice befriended American expatriate sculptor Herbert Chevalier Haseltine (1877–1962) in Europe during World War I and from 1926 to 1933 added five of his works to their modern art collection at Evergreen. This exhibition affords an intimate look at the celebrated artist through the vibrant friendship he maintained with his Baltimore-based kindred spirits over 25 years. Installed in the great Main Library—originally designed to display two of Haseltine’s sculptures—the exhibition brings together works drawn from the museum's and private collections, correspondence between Haseltine and the Garretts, and the artist’s unpublished memoir.
