Record Type: Person
Rosenwald, Lessing J. (American collector, 1891-1979)

Note: Lessing Julius Rosenwald followed his father in directing the mail-order firm of Sears, Roebuck & Company. In 1939, the younger Rosenwald retired from business to devote himself to public service and to his love of prints and drawings from the Middle Ages to the present. In 1941, only months after the National Gallery opened, Rosenwald began donating selections from his collection of works on paper. He also freely lent graphic art from his home outside Philadelphia for public exhibition or scholarly inspection in Washington. By the time of Rosenwald's death, his gifts to the Gallery totaled some 22,000 drawings and prints. He donated his rare illustrated books and manuscripts to the Library of Congress.
