Download PDF for this date

One of Renoir’s greatest paintings, “Femme Nue de Dos,” valued at $150, 000, was presented today to the America-Israel Cultural Foundation. The painting was bequeathed by the late Wilhelm Weinberg, art collector who lived in Ocarsdele, N. Y., until his death early this year. Mr. Weinberg, whose entire family was killed during the German invasion of Holland, left the portrait to the Tel Aviv Museum in memory of his three children.
