The Harvard Art Museum has received a gift of $45 million and 31 major works of art, including three paintings by Picasso.

Harvard University on Friday announced the gift from 1963 graduate-school alumna Emily Rauh Pulitzer, a former curator at the museum and wife of the late Joseph Pulitzer Jr.

The financial gift is the largest in the history of the museum.

The donated artwork includes Picasso's paintings "Harlequin," "Landscape" and "Portrait of Dora Maar"; the Joan Miro painting "Woman in the Night"; and a Roy Lichtenstein sculpture, "Sleeping Muse."
