Fogg Museum's latest and largest gift, $2,000,000 worth of priceless art objects from the collection of Grenville L. Winthrop '86, has finally been completely catalogued five years after the 1943 bequest.
Paintings, including masterpieces by Rodin, Whistler, and Roosetti, are included in the gift which museum authorities estimate have actually doubled the size of the original Fogg collection. Winthrop also included $100,000 in his bequest to care for the art objects.
An additional gift of rare Oriental miniatures, was promised the Museum last Thursday when it was announced that Mrs. Abby Aldrich Rockefeller had left her 26-item collection to her husband, on the condition that the Fogg Museum receive it on his death. No estimate has yet been placed on these objects.
