Oh if ONLY Liberty (or the Northland) had…….

a benefactor as charitable as Leonard Lauderleonard-lauder-Vogue-10Apr13-rex_b
(yes….THE Lauder of Estee’ Lauder cosmetics infamy). Mr Lauder has announced he is donating his collection of Cubism art…..estimated at approximately one billion dollars (that…$1,000,000,000)  to the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art . 78 works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris and Fernand Léger, are believed to be one of the foremost collections of Cubism in the world. It took Lauder almost 40 years to  complete this collection.

Along with the art works the museum will set up a new research center for modern art, supported by a $22 million endowment funded by grants from museum trustees and supporters, including Lauder.

Lauder,  explained why he picked the Met:

“I feel that it’s essential that Cubism — and the art that follows it, for that matter— be seen and studied within the collections of one of the greatest encyclopedic museums in the world,” he said in a statement. (quoted to USA Today reporter Maria Puente)

 

This is a fabulous act of charity for the art world….and the public.

Maybe someday it will come to the Northland…..or…Liberty too.
