Wes and Missy Cochran: Collectors of Works on Paper

The Cochran Collection documents some of the most compelling American art executed in the 20th Century. Works by most of the noted and recognized artists (Warhol, Rosenquist, Johns, Blackburn, Barnet, Gilliam, Picasso and many others) are represented here. These works are a profound documentation of the 20th Century's American social and cultural scene. The selections chosen for The Cochran Collection are reflections of the last half of the last century and manage to point toward what we might expect in and from the art world in this new millennium. The Pop, African-American, Abstract, Representational, Realist, Non-representational, and women artists in The Cochran Collection, portray America's overall popular attitudes, definitions, divisions, and directions. These are some of the factors making The Cochran Collection one of the most significant private art collections in the United States today.
