The Samuel H. Kress Foundation donated more than 700 Old Master paintings of late Medieval/Early Renaissance works to regional museums in eighteen American cities during the 1950s. Another 200 paintings were divided into study collections for twenty-three colleges and universities. Bucknell University received a gift of 20 of these masterworks that were accessioned into the Samek Art Museum collection. Those on view here have been recently restored and cleaned allowing these historic treasures to be studied and enjoyed by generations to come.
