UCLA Gallery Given Major Art Collection

June 12, 1988

The Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts at UCLA's Wight Art Gallery has received a major collection of Old- and Modern-Master prints from the estate of Los Angeles-based architect Rudolf L. (Rudi) Baumfeld.

The collection contains more than 800 works by European and American artists, including five landscape prints by Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn.

An exhibition of selected works from the collection will be displayed at the Wight Gallery this fall.

Baumfeld designed several projects in Europe and the United States, including Costa Mesa's South Coast Plaza and the Tishman 615 Building in downtown Los Angeles. He co-founded Victor Gruen Associates, the Los Angeles-based architectural firm now known as Gruen Associates, in 1951.
