Many collectors are drawn to painting and sculpture. That’s not the case with Marianne and Alan Schwartz, who, for over 60 years, have been collecting prints. Their comprehensive collection includes over 400 works and covers over 400 years of Western art history. In 1990, they loaned their collection to the Detroit Institute of Arts to be showcased in an exhibition entitled “Master Prints of Five Centuries: The Alan and Marianne Schwartz Collection.” That was not their first interaction with the museum, however. The Schwartz family has been intimately involved with DIA for nearly half of the museum’s 130-year history.
