Works include “The Beach at Scheveningen in Calm Weather” by Vincent van Gogh (1882)
“Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf is donating more than 200 paintings, sculptures, drawings and other works to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met).
Among the works are “The Beach at Scheveningen in Calm Weather” by Vincent van Gogh (1882).
The donation also includes works by Brodcino, Botticelli, Horacio Gentileschi and Artemisia Gentileschi and later artists including Giovanni Battista and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo.
In addition to his donations to the Museum’s Baroque and Renaissance art collections, he is also funding two galleries at the prestigious institution that will bear his name.
“From the time I was eight years old, I would stop by the Met on my way home from school two or three times a month and wander the galleries,” Wolfe said in a statement. “I’m sure most collectors would agree that having your art displayed in the world’s greatest museum is an honor. This is my holiday gift to the Museum, to the people of New York, and to the city where I first encountered the power and beauty of great art,” he said.
Wolff is one of the most successful producers in television history, as the creator of the two longest-running live-action scripted series (Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order). He has won two Emmys (for Law & Order and the HBO film Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee), a Grammy Award (for the documentary The Doors When You’re Strange), and countless other accolades.
