Since its founding in 1956 the Grunwald Center has acquired a formidable number of landscape prints and drawings dating from
the Renaissance to the present. A 1988 bequest of more than 850 landscape prints and drawings from the collection of Los Angeles
architect Rudolf L. Baumfeld significantly enhanced this wide-ranging and well-studied thematic area. Given its many strengths,
the Baumfeld Bequest is a fitting locus for a brief examination of landscape art in the Center's collection.
