Edward Boccia Collections

 

The Third Night 1971  May Collection Inventory no B92.jpg

“I have been collecting Mr. Boccia’s work for 17 years. This includes literally hundreds of drawings and over 100 paintings. Among these are his triptychs which I consider to be his major contribution… Boccia’s dominant mood is that of an Expressionist with memories of the great artists of the past and the great earth themes that have occupied mankind’s dreams for centuries.”

  • Morton D. May in a letter to Ogden Pleissner, Director of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, New York

Edward Boccia had a number of key collectors including Morton D. May, the leading American collector of German Expressionism. The artist’s work is also found in major museums and universities across the globe.
