NEW YORK (AP).- Huguette Clark, the Montana copper mining heiress who died in New York last month at 104, has left most of her $400 million fortune to the arts.
According to her will, obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday, Clark gave a prized Claude Monet water-lily painting not seen by the public since 1925 to Washington's Corcoran Gallery of Art.
Manhattan prosecutors had been looking into how Clark's finances were handled while she spent the last two decades of her life in a hospital, a virtual recluse. Before that, she lived in the largest apartment on Fifth Avenue.
The daughter of one-time U.S. Sen. William A. Clark left instructions for the creation of a foundation "for the primary purpose of fostering and promoting the arts."
