Alfred Stevens (1823-1906)
Property from the John C. Whitehead Collection Few individuals attained the breadth and scale of achievement as the businessman, diplomat, and philanthropist John C. Whitehead. A man of unequalled ambition and integrity, Whitehead spearheaded the transformation of the banking firm Goldman Sachs into the global powerhouse it is today; stood as a key diplomatic figure at the end of the Cold War; and led numerous civic and charitable organizations, including the post-9/11 Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, to great success. Whitehead’s striking collection of fine art, grounded in the work of the French Impressionists and the Post-Impressionists, serves as a tangible legacy of this great American leader.
