Queen’s University is now the recipient of another rare piece of art.

A Milwaukee couple, Linda and Daniel Bader, have donated Rembrandt’s Head of an Old Man With Curly Hair, painted in 1659, to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in honour of Daniel’s late father, Alfred Bader.

Former Queen’s alumnus Alfred Bader, was a chemist, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and art collector. He passed away in December 2018 at the age of 94.

Daniel says this most recent donation was one of his father’s favourite paintings.

This will be the fourth Rembrandt donated to the Agnes Etherington collection by the Bader family.
