Art collector; Sweden and Pennsylvania. Swedish-born Sandler came to the United States in 1940 as a courier on a confidential mission to the Swedish embassy regarding Hitler.
According to his son Ralph, he and his wife had started an art collection in Sweden, but when they were divorced after coming to this country, his wife kept the collection. Marc moved to Pittsburgh, where he started collecting once again, this time focusing on American paintings that were not, in his words, "sucked into the whirlpool of French movements."
