Nota del catálogo

The City College, flagship campus of the City University of New York, is a comprehensive teaching, research and service institution dedicated to accessibility and excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. The College was originally founded as the Free Academy of the City of New York in 1847 to provide children of immigrants and the working class access to free higher education based on academic merit alone. The City College of New York provides a world-class degree to one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation. Today, over 15,000 undergraduate and graduate students attend the college, more than half of whom were born outside of the United States.

Charles Offin was a 1920 graduate of The City College of New York. He was an artist, a connoisseur and art patron, while serving as an art editor of The Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Mr. Offin was a major patron of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where a gallery is named for him in recognition of his gifts to the museum. Mr. Offin died in 1990, aged 90. He bequeathed a far ranging collection of paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture to The City College, including lot 130 in this sale. Other works from the Collection will be included in Sotheby's March Contemporary Art sale and May and October Impressionist & Modern Art sales.

Proceeds from these sales will be used to support a number of art initiatives at the College, including support for the Fine Arts and performing arts.
