The Allentown Art Museum in eastern Pennsylvania has received one of its largest gifts ever—about five hundred works and pieces of property once owned by modernist artist Peter Grippe, according to the Associated Press.

The collection given to the museum features Grippe's own sculptures, drawings, and prints. It also includes works by Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Jacques Lipchitz, and poet Dylan Thomas. Museum executive director Greg Perry says the collection will be a boon to the institution's twentieth-century holdings.

Grippe was a Cubist-inspired sculptor and printmaker who died in 2002. His widow made the museum donation. She and Perry had worked together in the past.
