Collecting New York’s Stories

Marx Brothers, 1948

Collecting New York’s Stories: Stuyvesant to Sid Vicious opens tomorrow, January 22, 2020, at The Museum of the City of New York, and features highlights drawn from the hundreds of additions to the Museum’s permanent collection over the past three years, running the gamut from the colonial era to the recent past. Included in the show is Karsh’s photograph of the Marx Brothers, who Karsh photographed in 1948 for Collier’s magazine.

The print was donated to The Museum of the City of New York after its owner contacted us here at the Estate asking for assistance donating it somewhere it could be seen by the public, and we connected them with the MCNY curator.
