Museum gets Grippe trove

September 02, 2009|Associated Press

An eastern Pennsylvania art museum has received one of its largest gifts ever: about 500 works and property once owned by Modernist artist Peter Grippe.

The collection given to the Allentown Art Museum features Grippe's own sculptures, drawings and prints. It also includes works by Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Jacques Lipchitz and poet Dylan Thomas.

Grippe was a Cubist-inspired sculptor and printmaker who died in 2002. His widow made the museum donation.
