Catalogue Note

Henry W. Bloch (1922-2019), co-founder of H&R Block Inc., and his wife, Marion H. Bloch (1930-2013) were prominent supporters of the arts and numerous civic and philanthropic initiatives in their hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. Their legacy is particularly evident at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, where the Bloch Building expansion opened in 2007 and where the couple donated their collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterworks in 2015. Under the direction of former Nelson-Atkins director Ted Coe, as well as Ted Graber, interior decorator for the Reagan White House, the Blochs assembled a wide-ranging collection that included Chinese classical paintings and works of art and English furniture, which filled their Mission Hills home for decades.
