An exquisite but long hidden collection of California art was recently given to UCI by the trust of Gerald Buck, a Newport Beach developer and art aficionado who passed away in 2013.
The Buck Collection, consisting of over 3,200 original works of art, provides a uniquely comprehensive vision of art styles across many media.
The Collection includes works by Richard Diebenkorn, Peter Alexander, Sam Frances, Ruth Asawa, Bruce Conner, Roger Kuntz, Nathan Oliviera, David Park, William Ritschel, Wayne Tiebaud, Paul Wonner, Helen Lundeberg, and many others.
