Image:As a memorial to J. Carter Brown, former director of the National Gallery of Art, his friends and family set up a fund in his name. Among Carter's many interests, antiquities were an especially intriguing subject for him, as evidenced by the exhibitions organized during his time as director. For the past five years the National Gallery of Art Library has acquired books on antiquities using the J. Carter Brown Memorial Fund. From books on Rome and Roman life, to catalogues of important 17th- and 18th-century sculpture collections, to studies of Etruscan monuments, the J. Carter Brown Memorial Fund has greatly enhanced the library's holdings in classical research.

Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington
