The genesis of this catalogue stemmed from the generous gift of William D. and Jane Walsh, who donated their sizeable collection of ancient Mediterranean art to Fordham University in 2006. Mr. Walsh’s life-long passion for antiquity dates to his undergraduate days when he studied classics at Fordham in the early 1950s. Though his career took a different path (i.e., law and business), Walsh never lost his love for the ancient past. In fact, over the past thirty years, he built a collection of primarily Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiquities.
