The Los Angeles County Museum of Art announced a bequest commitment of a major painting from Barbra Streisand—a stunning 1900–1901 portrait, Mrs. Cazalet and Children Edward & Victor, by American artist John Singer Sargent. The bequest is being made in honor of LACMA’s 50th anniversary in 2015. “Barbra Streisand’s wonderful gift will add depth to an already strong collection of American art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries,” said Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director. “Future generations will benefit greatly from seeing Mrs. Cazalet and Children alongside other great American works in our collection by turnof-the-20th-century icons George Bellows, Mary Cassatt, and Thomas Eakins.” ‘Barbra has been a great supporter of the museum over the years, particularly as a trustee from 2007 to 2014,’ said Andy Brandon-Gordon, co-chair of LACMA’s board
