The Collection

Chuck Close: Works on Paper // Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 2013

Chuck Close: Works on Paper // Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 2013

Jordan D. Schnitzer purchased his first work of art when he was fourteen years old from the Fountain Gallery; the first contemporary art gallery in Portland, Oregon, owned and operated by his mother Arlene Schnitzer.  It was through her and her gallery that his initial acquisition turned into a lifelong pursuit to collect, share, and promote the visual arts.  While he furthers the family legacy of supporting local and regional artists in all mediums, Mr. Schnitzer began buying contemporary prints and multiples in earnest in 1988.  Prints and multiples seized his interest for their technical versatility and collaborative process. 

Work is available from two collections; the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and the collection of the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, whose combined holdings exceed 10,000 prints and multiples. The collections are both broad and deep in many seminal artists.
