14 October 2020 | New York | full auction details

It is an honor and a privilege to share the collection of Ambassador and Mrs. Felix Rohatyn. Amassed over decades, the collection beautifully embodies the synthesis between European taste and their American vision. The core of the Rohatyn Collection centers on a celebration of French culture—befitting the significance that France held in Ambassador Rohatyn’s life, from his childhood and his career at Lazard, to his eventual return as U.S. ambassador. The collection comprises a striking variety of works across a range of genres. Among the works presented in this auction are French Old Master Paintings and a carefully selected array of drawings including pieces by François Boucher and Jean Antoine Watteau. These works are complemented by the lyrical Venetian views by Canaletto and Bernardo Bellotto, each a masterpiece of stunning quality and importance.
