Art Term PaperHirshhorn Museum and Sculpture GardenThe man Joseph H. Hirshhorn, a Latvian immigrant from a family of 13 and a widowed mother, established the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. His passion for collecting art started at the age of 18. This love affair could be fed only because Mr. Hirshhorn became a successful businessperson. At the age of thirteen, he started a newspaper route, and then a few years later accepted a job on Wall Street in New York. After saving up $225, at the age of sixteen he invested it all and became a stockbroker. By the end of the 1940s he had invested in the Canadian Mining business and established his status as a wealthy man. Joseph Hirshhorns first pieces of art, two etchings by Albrecht Durer, were purchased for the price of $75. He would continue to acquire other paintings, photographs and sculptures from friends and acquaintances
