Henry Pearlman (1895-1974) was a self- made financial executive whose company, Eastern Cold Storage Insulation Co. specialized in marine refrigeration. With his wife Rose and two daughters, he enjoyed collecting art as a passion and would return at the end of a workday to relish his masterpieces. At the end of his 79 years, he had assembled an extraordinary collection of European masterpieces acquired through dealers, galleries, auctions and by trade. In 1955 Henry and Rose established a foundation to manage the works, and his heirs have been pleased that Princeton University assembled the best of scholars to address the many issues involved in the diverse collection which now resides on long term loan to the University’s art museum. The Pearlman’s nephew Daniel Edelman is President of the Foundation and noted that the pictures were very well received during their first world tour to Oxford, England, Aix-en-Provence, France, the High Museum in Atlanta, Georgia and Vancouver, Canada in 2014.
