This group of paintings come from the collection of Marc M. Spiegel who became a dedicated follower of Kantor’s work from their meetings in Paris. Spiegel was born in Russia in 1919 and moved to the U.S. with his family in early childhood. He graduated from Boston University in 1939 with an MA degree in Romance Languages and from Harvard University in 1940 with an MA degree in Linguistics. Spiegel had an illustrious wartime career, followed by distinguished career in the audiovisual industry with significant interest and expertise in Romance languages. He would become a generous philanthropist in his later life and in 2001, he founded his own activity for U.S. Education, ‘Academic Centers Abroad’ LLC, to develop study abroad programs for U.S. students. He established two centres in the heart of Florence with courses devoted to a wide range of the fine and liberal arts, supporting his view that every American student should have studied in a foreign country at least once during their education.
