Incorporated in 1952 in NY - When Robert Sterling Clark died in 1956, he left one-quarter of his estate to the foundation and one-quarter to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The other half of his estate was left in trust to his wife, Francine. When Mrs. Clark died in 1960, the institution and the foundation shared her portion of the estate.
