B eginning in the 1950s, Amy and Elliot Lawrence formed a quintessentially American collection of pre-modern sculpture including classical African, Oceanic, and American Indian art, as well as Pre-Columbian, Asian, and classical Antiquities. Amy was a scholar, teacher, and therapist; Elliot was a famous bandleader in the late 40s and 50s, who went on to have a legendary career as a music director in TV and film. Together the Lawrences explored the world through collecting and assembled an eclectic and harmonious group of objects around the grand piano in their apartment on Central Park West.
