NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announces a fall auction calendar of distinguished private collections offering an outstanding season of fresh to the market fine and decorative arts from four of the most renowned names associated with collecting, philanthropy and defining taste in 20th Century America. With a decidedly European thread, three of the four collections are marked by a collaboration with the French interior designer Henri Samuel. Estimates range from as little as $500 to $1 million.

The French Heritage Society, in collaboration with Christie’s Education, are offering a four-part series of complimentary online conversations on the decorative arts entitled HAUTE HOMES, coinciding with each of the sales.

Gemma Sudlow, Head of Private and Iconic Collections comments: “In time-honored tradition, this season sees Christie’s offering the most storied and prestigious collections to come to market. The enduring appeal of classic French taste and design combined with illustrious provenance presents a rare and exciting opportunity for seasoned and new collectors alike within a dynamic program of live and online sales.”


The Collection of A. Jerrold Perenchio
1-16 September | Chartwell: An Henri Samuel Commission
1-17 September | A California Life

The Collection of A. Jerrold Perenchio will be offered in a two-part landmark online sale from 1-16/17 September. A titan of industry and a generous philanthropist, Mr. Perenchio assembled one of the most preeminent collections of Impressionist and 20th Century European Art in America. Chairman and CEO of Univision and one of the most important benefactors of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where he bequeathed the majority of his collection, Mr. Perenchio created the extraordinary mis- en-scène of Chartwell mansion in collaboration with Henri Samuel.

The Private Collection of Jayne Wrightsman
6-15 October | online sale
14 October | live sale

The Private Collection of Jayne Wrightsman will be presented in two parts as a live auction on 14 October and an online sale from 6-15 October, leading Christie’s marquee week of sales celebrating Classic Art. A paragon of erudition and style, Jayne Wrightsman was a connoisseur and patron of the arts who redefined the field of collecting French decorative arts in America. She and her husband, Charles B. Wrightsman, built an exceptional collection and served as Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, making transformative gifts to the Museum and establishing The Wrightsman Galleries for French Decorative Arts. Her connoisseurship and collecting was fostered by her close relationships with a network of curators and fellow collectors, as well as by her relationships with three of the 20th century’s most esteemed interior decorators—Stéphane Boudin, Henri Samuel, and Renzo Mongiardino. All works are sold to benefit philanthropy.

Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Versailles and the Louvre. Dalva Brothers is renowned for holding one of the finest and deepest inventories of 18th century decorative arts in the world.

Working closely alongside Henri Samuel, Susan and John Gutfreund created an unparalleled, luxurious and informed collection of furniture and decorative objects within their Rosario Candela apartment building on Fifth Avenue.
