... were donated to the University of Utah to form the Browning Collection at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.

The collection up for bid includes items from Val Browning’s estate not donated to the museum, plus other acquired items purchased by Ed and Carol over a lifetime of collecting art. Most were displayed in Ed and Carol’s long-term home in Sun Valley.
