Briddge for Collectors and Museums, a full service art succession and estate planning firm, announced the gift of Diebenkorn’s ‘Woman with Flowers’ to the Orlando Museum on behalf of their client J. Hyde Crawford, renowned fashion illustrator, fabric and wallpaper designer. The painting is valued at nearly $2 million.
According to the museum’s director, Marena Grant Morrisey, “We are elated to add ‘Woman With Flowers’ to the new galleries that showcase the museum’s contemporary art collection. The Orlando Museum of Art has never received such a valuable painting.”
Briddge also disclosed an agreement by Crawford to contribute a large portion of his collection to other appropriate museums.
“After living in Orlando for many years, it is vitally important for me to give something valuable back to the community that I love,” said J. Hyde Crawford. “Additionally, Briddge played an invaluable role on my behalf in planning for the succession of my collection and its effect on my estate,” he added.
