Artists often draw inspiration from other artists, occasionally paying tribute to their influential colleagues by creating unusual portraits or works in the style of their masters. Selections from the collection traced the interrelationship of muse and acolyte in such works as Wesley Olmsted's assemblage for Martha Visser't Hooft and Robert Flock's homage to Harriet Greif. Tribute works were shown in context with examples of art by the inspirational artists.
