Gift of Rare Arbus Prints to Metropolitan Museum
Danielle and David Ganek of Greenwich, Connecticut have donated 13 vintage prints by Diane Arbus to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, one of the largest gifts of 20th Century photographs ever made to that institution. Included are several of Arbus's best-known images: "A Young Waitress in a Nudist Camp, N.J." (1963); "A Family on Their Lawn One Sunday in Westchester, N.Y." (1968); and "A Jewish Giant at Home With His Parents in the Bronx, N.Y." (1970).

The Met's associate curator of photography, Jeff L. Rosenheim discovered the prints when he was working on the catalogue for the upcoming Arbus retrospective at the museum. They are particularly valuable, as they are rare examples of prints made by Arbus herself. Most extant prints were produced after her suicide in 1971 at the age of 48.

The exhibition "Diane Arbus Revelations ended on Feb. 8 at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It will open at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Feb. 29 after which it will be on view at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston from June 27 to Aug. 29. In the U.S., it will end up at the Met beginning on Feb. 28, 2005. From there the show goes on to Essen, Germany; London; Barcelona; and Minneapolis.
