The Ann and Gordon Getty Collection: Temple of Wings
Event date 31 May - 15 June
Event location New York
Christie's New York presents The Ann and Gordon Getty Collection: Temple of Wings, an auction series celebrating the renowned couple's transformation of their landmark Berkeley Hills estate and the iconic Greco-Roman-style former home of Florence Treadwell Boynton. On 14 June, the live auction unites fine and decorative arts, spotlighting Charles Robert Ashbee, A.W.N. Pugin, William Morris and more notable architecture and design leaders. Next, The Ann and Gordon Getty Collection: Aesthetic Decoration from Temple of Wings is an online auction focusing on the influence of the 19th-century Aesthetic movement and the Gettys’ shared appreciation for the pure beauty of the visual arts. Explore innovative techniques and uses of materials developed throughout the 20th century in the final online auction, The Ann and Gordon Getty Collection: Early Modern Design from Temple of Wings. Highlights include glassware by Émile Gallé and Daum, textiles from Fortuny, Silver Studio and by William Morris and a brilliant collection of works from Tiffany Studios.
Following last season's marquee series, this is an exceptional opportunity to be part of the distinguished collection's legacy. Proceeds will benefit selected arts and science organisations designated by Ann and Gordon Getty.
