New Acquisition: 46 Photos by Edward Steichen
As you may have read in the New York Times over the weekend, LACMA is one of three recipients of Edward Steichen photographs from the collection L.A.-based donors Richard and Jackie Hollander. The Hollanders have generously given 142 photographs, split amongst LACMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University. The photographs given to LACMA range from 1913 to 1938, and many of them are portraits of actors or artists, among others. You’ll have your first opportunity to see these photographs in the galleries later this summer; in the meantime, here’s a taste of some of the works joining our collection.
