Collector J. Tomilson Hill, art dealer Richard Feigen, and Jock Reynolds, the Henry J. Heinz II Director of the Yale University Art Gallery, all share a passion for collecting art in more than one category. In a panel discussion held at The Frick Collection on April 2, 2014, they shared personal views and recollections of how their tastes developed and how the works they have acquired for private, semi-public, and public collections have inspired them to see unconventional connections between different styles and periods.
