Olga Hirshhorn, RIP
Amazing collection of art in DC. Pulled De Kooning out of poverty and probably saved his life.
If you travel to Naples Florida, visit the Baker Museum. She donated many wonderful pieces to that museum as well.
Besides collecting the finest post-war art, she was also an aggressive collector of flea market finds. To me, this is a true sign of a true art enthusiast. She was not only a trophy collector.
Her late husband taught her well and she developed a keen eye over the decades.
fcs, good to see you posting and hope you are well.
