The Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, Founding Contributor

Emily Hall Tremaine and her husband Burton G. Tremaine, Sr., were collectors of 20th century art with an emphasis on work done by artists after 1945.  The Tremaine art collection was widely considered to be one of the finest reflections of contemporary art in the nation.  Emily Hall Tremaine's artistic vision helped her to collect works from artists who at the time were just starting to define contemporary art.  Together, the Tremaines selected works that would be seminal for successive generations of artists and art collectors.  Emily established the Foundation with the sale of her art collection prior to her death in 1987.  Choosing to reflect in their grant-making Emily Hall Tremaine's distinction for foresight, imagination and risk-taking, the board of directors chose Learning Disabilities, Arts, and the Environment as their three focus areas.  Through the development of strong focus area strategies, the Foundation is committed to carrying on Emily Hall Tremaine's legacy.  To learn more, visit
