2015 Matching Campaign a success thanks to your generosity

Thanks to many generous friends of the CSF, our 2015 Matching Campaign has been a success!  With your contributions and the generous support of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous, we raised $9,469.20—or 95% of our $10,000 goal.

Boy with Cello in its present condition covered with a protective gauze (left), and how we hope it will look after restoration (from an older photograph).

We plan to use a portion of the funds towards the restoration one of Schmitt’s most beloved works, Boy with Cello, a large portrait of his son Austin from the early 1930s.  The painting is is urgent need of restoration, as small chips of pain have begun to come off the surface.

We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the work, as well as other projects in the the planning stages, including matting and framing beautiful pastels now hidden away in portfolios in the CSF studio-gallery.

Thanks to all who contributed!

  1. Thank you, John and William. It’s very gratifying to know that my grandfather’s legacy has a wide appeal.

    And I’m excited about the projects we have in the works as they will bring out the beauty of Schmitt’s work for years to come.
