Sternthal Books hosted a book launch party for the publication of The Rothfeld Collection at The Rene and Chaim Gross Foundation in New York City. The event included a reception and cocktails, along with a preview of this incredible Foundation.
The Foundation was first established in 1974 with donations from over two dozen close friends and supporters of American artist Chaim Gross (1904-91), , the Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation is located in the couple’s historic Greenwich Village townhouse and the artist’s studio space at 526 LaGuardia Place, and opened its doors to the public in 1994. In 2009, the Foundation expanded its activities and opened to the public the building’s third floor, comprised of the Gross’s living and dining space. The Foundation stewards an extensive collection of over 10,000 objects that includes Gross’s sculptures, drawings, and prints; a photographic archive; and Gross’s large personal collection of African, Oceanic, Pre-Columbian, American, and European art that remains installed in the townhouse as Gross had it during his a lifetime.
