NAPLES, FLA.- Hindman announced that it will present Property from the Estate of Leslie "Mitzi" S. Magin in the May 4 Post War and Contemporary Art and May 5 Prints and Multiples auctions. The sale of these works, which were collected by Mitzi and her husband, James F. Magin, will benefit four Naples, Florida charities – St. Ann School Foundation, Ave Maria School of Law, St. John Neumann Catholic High School, and NCH Healthcare System.

Magin, a distinguished Naples philanthropist, was a strong proponent of Catholic education and supported numerous Catholic charities including St. Ann Church, St. Ann School Foundation, St. John Neumann Catholic High School, Ave Maria School of Law, The Blessed Edmund Rice School of Pastoral Ministry, as well as Naples Community Hospital and NCH Healthcare Foundation. Prior to moving to Naples, Magin lived in Chicago for 24 years where she also supported a number of charities.

“Mitzi Magin was such a force within the Naples philanthropic community, and we are honored to be offering works from her collection in this year’s May Fine Art sales,” said Hindman’s Business Development Director, Elizabeth Rader. “We are looking forward to seeing how buyers respond to these fantastic contemporary works.”

This offering of the Magins’ collection includes extraordinary contemporary works of art including Bernard Frize’s Rimano (lot 6; estimate: $30,000-50,000) and Cy Twombly’s Natural History Part II: Some Trees of Italy (lot 42; estimate: $30,000-50,000).

Other noteworthy lots include Jim Dine’s The Gray Fort (lot 23; estimate: $8,000-12,000), Johnnie Ross’s Salt Creek Seeps (lot 15; estimate: $6,000-8,000), and Helen Frankenthaler’s Beginnings (lot 57; estimate: $5,000-7,000). Artists also represented in the May 4 auction include Alexander Liberman and Arthur Osver.

Additional works from the estate will be presented in the Modern Design auction (May 20) and the Palm Beach Collection auction (May 24 and 25).

Bidding for the May 4 and 5 auctions will begin at 10am CT. Bidders will be able to participate via absentee bid, by phone, or live online through the Digital Bid Room, Hindman’s recently launched online and mobile bidding platform. A private preview of the auction will be available at Hindman’s Chicago office by appointment only.
