Carol Vogel announces a major gift to the Art Institute of Chicago:
In the inner circles of the art world, the Boston collector Dorothy Braude Edinburg is a well-known personality. For decades now, she has been a regular at auctions and gallery shows in the United States and abroad. To officials at the Art Institute of Chicago, Ms. Edinburg is also a fairy godmother. […] The museum will receive nearly 1,000 works including about 800 works on paper, along with 150 ceramic objects from China and Korea, as well as Japanese illustrated books.
Ms. Edinburg is especially well known for her works on paper, and the gift includes 613 prints and 190 drawings by artists including Picasso, Matisse, Degas, Monet and Léger. It is one of the most significant in the museum’s history and is being named the Harry B. and Bessie K. Braude Memorial Collection, after Ms. Edinburg’s parents.
