The Albert M. Greenfield and Elizabeth M. Greenfield Collection

October 30, 1974–February 18, 1975

Art of the twentieth century was the prominent attraction when Members were invited on October 29 to a preview of The Albert M. Greenfield and Elizabeth M. Greenfield Collection, given to the Museum through the generous bequest of Mr. Greenfield and as a result of the decision of his widow, Mrs. Donald A. Petrie, a Vice-President of the Museum. Joining Mrs. Petrie at the preview were Museum President George M. Chetson, Honorary Trustee Mrs. Russell Richardson, and Museum Vice-President Henry P. McIlhenny. Some fifty paintings, drawings, and sculptures by such artists as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Larry Rivers, many previously unrepresented in the Museum's collections, were installed in the Special Exhibition Galleries by Anne d'Harnoncourt, Curator of Twentieth-Century Painting. Special events at the preview included a lecture by Miss d'Harnoncourt and films on contemporary art.
