Sotheby’s is proud to present the third sale of Dr Erika Pohl-Stroher’s extraordinary collection of portrait miniatures. Dr Pohl-Ströher was the grand-daughter of Franz and Marie Ströher, who founded German hair care and cosmetics giant Wella AG. Between 1978 and 2016, a period of nearly forty years, she passionately and discerningly collected portrait miniatures, slowly putting together one of greatest collections ever formed. This third sale contains superb examples from the leading artists of many of the most important national schools of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. A close look presents the viewer with an outstanding opportunity to dive into the lost worlds of the past.
