‘The most visible manifestation of affluence,” Howard Rachofsky once told Bloomberg Business, “is what’s hanging on your walls.” What’s hanging on the Rachofskys’ walls is a collection of roughly 800 works, primarily devoted to American and European postwar movements, displayed on a rotating basis at their private residence, the Rachofsky House, in Dallas. (In 2005, the Rachofskys, along with two other Dallas families, made their collection, as well as future acquisitions, a promised gift to the Dallas Museum of Art.) What can’t be found at the house could very well be at the Warehouse, a project that Howard Rachofsky initiated with fellow collector Vernon Faulconer for the purpose of providing scholars, curators, and critics access to their respective collections.
