Ivan Olinksy, a Russian who arrived in New York City at age 13, was for many years the studio assistant of John LaFarge, the celebrated muralist and stained glass designer. After LaFarge’s death, Olinsky became a well-known painter in his own right, and George Herdle included his work in MAG’s inaugural exhibition of 1913. In attempting to trace that painting for the Gallery’s 75th anniversary show, MAG made contact with Olinsky’s daughter and grandsons. Serendipitously, Olinksky’s great-grandson had just graduated from the University of Rochester, and the family generously donated A New Arrangement to the permanent collection.
