(Valerie) Delacorte consisting of more than 65 objects including Old Master, and 19th-and 20th-century paintings, sculpture and works on paper including artists such as Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt, Ferdinand Bol, Adriaen Hanneman, Giambattista Tiepolo, J.-B.-C. Corot, Joaquin Sorolla, and Modigliani. This is a transformational gift, making the Norton Museum’s collection of Old Master paintings one of the largest and most important in Florida. To celebrate this unprecedented gift, The Norton Museum of Art will display a selection of its works in the ongoing installation Rubens to Corot: the Delacorte gift which will open to the public on March 19, 2008.
