$15,000 toward the acquisition of Conspiracy, c.1955, a painting by the artist for the museum’s permanent collection. Following his studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Biberman lived and established his career in Paris and New York City before settling in Los Angeles in 1936. Influenced by social realism, Biberman painted portraits and murals that increasingly reflected mid-century social and political concerns such as the Spanish Civil War and McCarthyism.
