Ho Tam, Chrysanthemum, excerpt from Ming Blue, 1996, oil on panel. Gift of Herbert O. Bunt, 2000. (42-22.03)
We lost a lovely collector and patron on 19 June, with the passing of Herbert O. Bunt, in his 96th year. He’ll be missed and fondly remembered for his raucous incisive aesthetics, his pronouncements, wicked teasing humour, generosity, and, most of all, for his passionate, unstinting faith in artists.
Herbert left an amazing legacy within the Agnes collection, to which he donated works of art across four decades.
