The Kamen Collection of Western Art was bequeathed to Washington and Lee in 1986 by Stan Kamen '49. Although he was a native of New York City, Kamen became a true son of the west filling his home and office with paintings, prints and sculptures reflecting his love of horses and the western landscape. The Kamen Collection brings to Washington and Lee the benefits of Kamen's personal taste and knowledge. It offers a view of the American West and particularly of the “Old West” that has been created by some of America's foremost twentieth-century western artists.
