John Richardson: A Scholar Collects DAY ONE
DAY ONE Wednesday, September 16: Lots 1-250 DAY TWO Thursday, September 17: Lots 251-513 ?So diverse are the things that have come my way that I had to make a virtue of necessity and mix them all together?? said Sir John Richardson, renowned Picasso scholar, curator and bon vivant, referring to the eclectic collection that filled his lower Fifth Avenue loft. We are pleased to be offering for sale Richardson?s collection of art and objects, including works by Picasso and Warhol, Old Master prints, Neo-classical busts, photographs, porcelain, furniture and colorful textiles acquired over a lifetime of travel around the world. Housed in the lush, bohemian interior of his New York City apartment that welcomed artists, academics and socialites alike, the collection represents the multi-layered life that Richardson lived and is his autobiography in ?things?, providing a rare insight into the life of an extraordinary man.
