Helen Levitt Gives It To the Met

Helen Levitt, New york, 1972

Good news, for a change, from Media Bistro. "The Met recently established an endowment fund and promised gift of artwork in memory of Levitt, the great American street photographer who died on March 29 at the age of 95. The fund, created through a planned gift of the artist's sister-in-law, will support the Met's acquisition of photographs by Levitt and other mid-20th-century American photographers working in her tradition. Twelve of Levitt's photographs have also been promised as a gift to the museum, which already has 43 in its collection"
