Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson were among the most trailblazing collectors of postwar American art. Sotheby's is honored to present over 25 works from their celebrated collection.
Following the Collection of Ginny Williams evening sale on 29 June, Sotheby’s is honored to offer nearly 50 works from the Ginny Williams Collection in the Contemporary Art Day sale. A pioneering collector and lifelong patron of the arts, Ginny Williams was a dynamic force who transformed every community she touched. Amassed across her lifetime, the Ginny Williams Collection reflects the same indomitable spirit and singular creative vision which infused every aspect of her extraordinary life. From an indexical presentation of sculptures and works on paper by Louise Bourgeois, to classic examples of mature works by Philip Guston, Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, Per Kirkeby and Donald Judd. An avid photography collector as well, the sale also features examples of 20th Century photography by Robert Mapplethorpe, John Coplans, Louise Lawler and Ann Hamilton.
