A painting that had hung in Reed Library for over 30 years will help preserve an important literary archive. The painting by Niko Pirosmani, “Georgian Woman Wearing a Lechaki,” sold Tuesday at Sotheby’s in London for an estimated $2.3 million. The Fredonia College Foundation, which owned the painting, has established an endowment which will invest all net funds generated through this sale to support the prestigious Stefan Zweig collection, as well as Archives and Special Collections in Reed Library, for the benefit of scholars and students who have the remarkable opportunity to study the works of an important writer.
