In 1956, the Metropolitan Museum of Art auctioned selections from their permanent collection at Parke-Bernet Galleries in New York City. Long-time museum advisor Wilford S. Conrow purchased 12 paintings at the sale for HMA’s collection with funding provided by A. Alex Shuford. Many of these works are fan favorites including Venice Moonrise by Samuel Colman and The Bathers by Lillian Genth.
