Aaron M. and Clara Weitzenhoffer Collection

In 2000, the University of Oklahoma received the single most important collection of French Impressionism ever given to an American public university. The gift included 22 paintings and 11 works on paper by such artists as Degas, Gauguin, Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Vuillard, and others. The donation came to the University as the bequest of Clara Weitzenhoffer, an art collector and long-time supporter of the University. The collection had been known only to a handful of scholars and had been virtually unexhibited for the 50 years. In addition to the works of art, the bequest included a collection of Mrs. Weitzenhoffer's 18th-century decorative arts, including period furniture, porcelain and silver.
