Leo Wallerstein (1882-1956) emigrated from Germany to New York in 1900, where he attended the Cooper Union. Frequent European visits between 1919 and 1931 provided Wallerstein with the opportunity to assemble his vast collection of prints, which reflected his special interest in German and Netherlandish artists of the 15th through the 17th centuries. Remembering his alma mater, to Cooper Hewitt Leo and his wife Dorothy donated several hundred works by the most important northern printmakers of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
