The collection that Mary and Jackson Burke acquired in a period of only about ten years was truly a joint effort, and seldom has there been a couple who worked together so tirelessly and effectively to assemble a large group of important and beautiful works of art. Like all great collectors, they enjoyed the chase and the capture, but Jackson's greatest satisfaction came from showing his wonderful things to others in his own mini-gallery.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is proud to be able to show the full range of Mary and Jackson Burke's treasures to the public for the first time and to publish this catalogue, whose appearance Jackson eagerly anticipated. The joy these works will now bring to thousands is the finest tribute we can pay to Jackson, and we can be confident it will be the one that would have pleased him the most.
Jackson Burke, 1908–1975
