Catalogue Note

Maxine Pines, née Maxine Firestone, was born on October 10, 1924 in Tennessee. In 1964, she married New York publisher Ned Pines, owner of successful publications including popular comic books and pulp magazines. Together, the couple collected art voraciously and passionately throughout their lives. Upon Ned’s retirement from publishing in 1971, the couple traveled extensively, spending several months each year at their home in France, where they frequented Parisian galleries and dined on exquisite local food and wine.

Maxine and Ned belonged to a generation that collected with extraordinary excitement and devotion for the art of their time and an interest and curiosity in artists. Living with artworks represented a quest, a privilege, a joy, a permanent stimulation, emotions that could not be linked to speculation. The couple decided on their purchases purely according to instinct: they bought what they liked, regardless of trends and popular opinion.

Following Ned’s death in 1990, Sotheby’s was entrusted with the sale of the Estate of Ned L. Pines. The dedicated auction showcased many treasures from the Pines’ collection, including works by Georges Rouault, Joan Mirò, Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning among others. Sotheby’s is honored to be selling works from the Estate of Maxine Pines this fall. Maxine was survived by two sons from a prior marriage - Anthony Michelman (his wife, Gene, and their daughter, Maguy) and Kenneth Michelman (and his wife, Annie).
