Three separate collectors contribute
This past week SFMOMA announced promised gifts by three separate collectors. Jeffery Frankel Gallery, an aipad member gallery, the Kurenboh Collection in Tokyo, and one anonymous donor were the source of this exciting contribution to MOMA's holdings. Frankel Gallery donated 26 Diane Arbus images; the donation will double the museum's holdings of Arbus prints. The Kurenboh Collection in Tokyo's gift also increased an already notable collection of the museum- the largest collection of Japanese photography in the US, just grew by 350 prints. Other new acquisitions and promised gifts include works by Robert Adams, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Irving Penn and Garry Winogrand.
