“I have two motives for giving this painting to Worcester,” said collector Hester Diamond.  “First, it is an opportunity to honor my stepdaughter, Rachel Kaminsky, who joined the Museum Board in 2012.  Beyond that, I have always believed that the best public home for a work of art is within an institution where it adds something new to the collection and helps bring in new audiences.  Over the years, my collection has evolved, incorporating art from many periods, genres and styles.  The Worcester Museum’s willingness to explore new ideas for encouraging audiences of every age to think differently about art reflects the arc of my own collecting.”
