Featured exhibition

The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller

In spring of 2018, the sale of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller will take place at Christie’s Rockefeller Center Galleries in New York. In keeping with David Rockefeller’s pledge to direct the majority of his wealth to philanthropy and provide for the cultural, educational, medical, and environmental causes long supported by him and his wife, all of the Estate’s proceeds from the sales across a wide variety of categories will be donated to the Rockefeller family’s charities of choice. As such, it will be the most important philanthropic auction ever held.

As the global tour begins in Hong Kong, we unveil a Rose Period Picasso handpicked from Gertrude Stein’s collection, the most important Matisse ever offered at auction, and other standout works.
