Christie’s spring sale of Design is comprised of two private American collections with a curated focus on works by some of the most iconic names of French design. The artists featured include Pierre Chareau, Jean Dunand, Jean-Michel Frank, Eileen Gray, François-Xavier Lalanne, Pierre Legrain, Jean Puiforcat, Jean Royère, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, who are among the most representative of an era in which France led the world as a hub of creativity of the highest quality and sophistication.
Also on view from 16-29 June at Rockefeller Center, Christie's is pleased to present a non-selling exhibition The Tiffany Collection of Jay and Micki Doros which features one of the world’s finest and most important private collections of its kind. The Doroses began collecting the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany in 1972 and, in the 46 years since, have added innumerable masterworks. Although the strength of the collection is the remarkable blown Favrile glass vases made between 1894 and 1925, there are also exceptional examples of Tiffany’s paintings, enamels, mosaics, jewelry and metalwork. The objects from the collection have rarely been exhibited and most have been out of public view for over 40 years.
