Painting 'Ginko Trees in Central Park' by Gilot
Manhattan real estate tycoon and President of Hirschfeld Properties, LLC, Elie Hirschfeld publically announced the acquisition of "Ginko Trees in Central Park" (2002-2004, Oil on Canvas), an original painting by Francoise Gilot.
"'Ginko Trees in Central Park' holds great meaning to me because it depicts a special New York City scene and reminds me of the large ginkgo tree in the backyard of my parents' home," said Elie Hirschfeld. "I am honored to have purchased this painting and own a small part of such a great history. Ms. Gilot is an inspiration to all, both as an artist and as a person. Through this acquisition, it was a pleasure getting to know Ms. Gilot and I look forward to our ongoing friendship."
