The thousands of works from Fred Grunwald's collection that were donated to UCLA did not arrive in a single bequest. Rather, they were given over the course of three decades, by Fred himself and by his heirs after his death. The pages below divide the artworks into five bequests that demonstrate the range and quality of Grunwald's collection, and together represent the foundation of the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts.
