"January 11, 2015 — Mana Contemporary is pleased to present The T’ang Horse: Anthony Quinn, an exhibition of Anthony Quinn’s own art, accompanied by a selection of pieces from his vast personal collection that he acquired throughout his life and travels.
Known primarily as an actor, Anthony Quinn was also an accomplished visual artist. Over the course of his long life he produced an extensive oeuvre of paintings, drawings and sculptures. At the same time, Quinn was a voracious and obsessive collector, amassing a personal collection of more than 3,000 objects that included art works, rare books, antiques, African masks, decorative eggs and an array of found objects such as rocks and fragments of coral.
The T’ang Horse: Anthony Quinn brings together a representative sampling of Quinn’s own art works, juxtaposing them with pieces from his collection. The exhibition is named after an antique Chinese ceramic horse sculpture, the first artwork Quinn purchased as a teenager."
