historical notes Philanthropist and art collector Arabella Duval Huntington was the wife of the railroad and shipping magnate, Collis P. Huntington.

After his death, Arabella married Collis' nephew, Henry E. Huntington. Both husbands put at Arabella's disposal immense funds for the purchase of works of art. Her purchases later became the foundation for Huntington Library and Art Gallery in California. Aside from her art collecting, Mrs. Huntington spent much of her time immersed in various charitable and humanitarian endeavors.

Mrs. Collis P Huntington lent the following work to the Hudson_Fulton Show in 1909:
Piping Sheperds - Aelbert Cuyp
Portrait of a Man- Frans Hals
Dorathea Berck- Frans Hals
Balthasar Coymans - Frans Hals
