The philanthropist and sculptor Lolo Sarnoff, much of whose great art collection was sold recently at Sotheby’s, came from a distinguished heritage of connoisseurship. Her father was the Frankfurt banker and art collector Willy Dreyfus. Her mother Martha, née Koch, also a sculptor and the subject of portraits by Vlaminck and Kokoschka, remarried in 1945 a friend from her youth, the legendary art collector Robert von Hirsch.
