Rothschild Masterpieces

Rothschild Masterpieces

Sale Overview

This October, Christie’s is honored to present Rothschild Masterpieces, a series of auctions in New York. With collections dating back to the late 18th century, the Rothschilds are famed for their curated trove of extraordinary works of fine and decorative arts which form the interiors of their homes across Europe.

This selection of highlights is part of a sale that comes from the collection of Baron James de Rothschild, his wife Betty, and their sons Baron Alphonse and Baron Gustave. So lavish were the interiors of their houses in Paris and at the Château de Ferrières that this style became known as “goût Rothschild”.

The collection to be offered includes important maiolica produced in Renaissance Italy, hardstone boxes, silver and silver-gilt sculptures, tapestries, Limoges enamels, Old Master paintings, 17th-century jewelry and a set of remarkable painted leather panels from Weißenstein castle in Pommersfelden, Germany.
