Murray Frum's gift to the renaissance AGO project will make the newly renovated arts institution a major destination on the world's art stage. Congratulations to Mr. Frum and his family for this inspirational gift to Toronto. Here is part of yesterday's AGO's press release.

Corpus is one of the largest bronzes by Bernini, measuring approximately 5 feet, 6 inches. One of the most significant Old Masters works still in private hands, the crucifix was cast around 1650. The Frum gift, which would be worth in excess of $50 million in the current market, is further distinguished by the fact that the artist created it expressly for himself.
