Sotheby's 7 March 2015 auction, Joy, Love and Peace: The Peter B. Lewis Collection, brought a strong total of $2,955,629. James Rosenquist's Untitled and Keith Haring's Gil's Dream led the auction, each selling for $442,000, well above their pre-sale estimates.
Sotheby’s presents “Joy, Love And Peace: The Peter B. Lewis Collection.” Peter Lewis was a business visionary who turned a 100-employee insurance firm into one of the nation’s largest auto insurance companies, Progressive Corporation. Mr. Lewis’s passion for the arts extended far beyond his own personal collection, and was felt by many through his unstinting philanthropy and generous contributions to the advancement of modern art and architecture. Highlights of the sale include exceptional works by Jean Dubuffet, Claes Oldenburg, Keith Haring, James Rosenquist and Alex Katz.
