They are the bequest of Hannelore B. Schulhof, who collected the works with her late husband Rudolph B. Schulhof. According to an agreement drawn up by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and Mrs. Schulhof, the gift of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper will reside permanently at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
