Sanford Hirsch

is Executive Director of the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation.

The Start of the Gottlieb Foundation

The idea for a foundation to help older artists started in a discussion between Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko in the late 1960s. Mark Rothko died in February, 1970; Gottlieb in March, 1974. Both artists left similar instructions to establish foundations to help individual artists.
