Santa Barbara Museum Of Art Gets Major Art Donation

Posted on Friday, June 13, 2014 3:06pm

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has received a major donation of more than 70 noteworthy works of art from the estate of a longtime museum supporter.

The gifts from the Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Collection include a Picasso, as well as a number of other significant European paintings.

Robert Eichholz died in 1983.  His wife, Mercedes, passed away at the age of 96 last August.  The works will become a part of the museum’s permanent collection, with some going on public exhibition later this month.
