An exhibition showcasing a selection of works donated to the WAG from Samuel B. Nitikman (1899–1982) opens. 

Nitikman was a Ukrainian-born businessman and WAG Board Member who amassed an art collection that included the work of Yves Klein (1828–1962), Ad Reinhardt (1913–1967), Ossip Zadkine (1890–1967), and others. From the late 1970s to the mid-1990s, Nitikman, and subsequently his estate, donated almost 200 works by international artists to the WAG. He also established the S. B. Nitikman Fund for the Gallery purchase of contemporary art.
