Priscilla Morgan, who had a talent for spotting talent and supporting it, died Sunday at age 94.
Describing her life of forging relationships in the arts, the New York Times called her a “cultural matchmaker.”
It was Morgan who introduced movie director Arthur Penn to actor Warren Beatty, leading to the 1967 film classic, “Bonnie and Clyde.”
She helped artists Willem de Kooning and Isamu Noguchi, and playwright Israel Horovitz.
She also was godmother to Horovitz’s daughter, Rachel Horovitz, who has produced such films as “Moneyball,” “Grey Gardens” and “State and Main.”
