Abstract:

In a visit to the famous art collection in their ample duplex on New York's East Side, Sally and Victor Ganz describe how they began to collect art in the 1940's. Picasso was their first passion, but then other artists, such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella, artists closer to home, became interesting too. Victor Ganz was unusually perceptive and adventurous when it came to contemporary art. Making the rounds alone one Saturday afternoon in 1968, he came upon the work of Eva Hesse in New York's Fischbach Gallery. He was immediately attracted by its freshness and spirit, and together Victor and Sally not only became major collectors, but also soon thereafter close friends of the artist. Eva Hesse died a year and a half later of a brain tumor at age 35. After her untimely death, they became instrumental in placing Hesse's key works in important international museums.
