The purchase augments a group of pivotal modern furnishings at both museums, starting with an Arthur Mackmurdo Century Guild Dining Chair (1883, below) that is also jointly owned.
Untitled (for Leo Castelli), 1977, installed in the neglected, tar-pit-adjacent sculpture garden east of the Bing Center. The Prototype Chairs are the first Judd works for the Huntington collection. (Huntington curator Kevin Salatino asked architect Frederick Fisher to "imagine that Donald Judd was a Shaker" in designing the new Jonathan and Karin Fielding Wing.)
