Irvin Ungar on Arthur Szyk: Soldier in Art

Wed, May 02, 2018 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In 2017, The Magnes acquired from Irvin Ungar, a private collector, the most significant collection of works by Arthur Szyk (Łódź, Poland, 1894 – New Canaan, Connecticut, 1951)  thanks to an unprecedented gift from Taube Philanthropies. Szyk’s works are now available to the world in a public institution for the first time as the Taube Family Arthur Szyk Collection.
