Visionary: The Paul G. Allen Collection

  • Event date 9 - 10 November
  • Event location New York

Christie’s New York is proud to present Visionary: The Paul G. Allen Collection from 9–10 November at Rockefeller Center. The collection of philanthropist Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, includes more than 150 masterpieces spanning 500 years of art history. Reflecting the depth and breadth of Paul G. Allen’s collection, the auctions connect this visionary innovator to a range of ground-breaking artists, joining Paul Cezanne with David Hockney and Georges Seurat with Jasper Johns. Valued in excess of $1 billion, The Paul G. Allen Collection is poised to be the largest and most exceptional art auction in history. Pursuant to his wishes, the estate will dedicate all the proceeds to philanthropy.


Beginning 29 October, view The Paul G. Allen Collection in-person at our Rockefeller Center galleries.
