Property from the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Paul E. Manheim (lots 149-51)
Paul Manheim (1906-1999) was a rare early American collector of Asian art whose insight and vision distinguished him as one of America's most astute and discerning collectors. Professionally, Mr. Manheim joined the New York Wall Street firm, Lehman Brothers in 1928, and was a partner since 1944. As his financial successes grew, so did his interest in art. Manheim began collecting Asian art in the 1960s, with a special focus on works from India and Nepal. Before his death, the generous collector donated many works to the Brooklyn Museum, where he served on its Board of Trustees. This September, Christie's is honored to present several works of art from this distinguished collection, both in this sale and in our sale of Indian and Southeast Asian Art.
