NY-based Lichtenstein foundation gives photo trove
NEW YORK (AP) - A trove of photographs of more than 400 artists at work is being given to five major American and European museums by the New York-based Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.
The foundation announced Thursday it's donating about 200,000 black-and-white prints, negatives and other materials from its collection of works by Harry Shunk and János (YAH'-nohs) Kender.
The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Tate in London and the Centre Pompidou (SAHN'-treh PAHM'-pih-doo') in Paris will receive the works.
The German-born Shunk and Hungary-born Kender formed a photographic partnership called Shunk-Kender in 1958. Over 15 years, they photographed visual artists including Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol and Lichtenstein, as well as dancer Merce Cunningham and rocker Lou Reed.
