F ifth Avenue has long been one of the world’s greatest repositories of 18th and 19th century French Fine and Decorative arts outside of France. Rich holdings are found both in the public institutions of the Metropolitan Museum, Frick and Cooper-Hewitt, and also in the private collections of its illustrious residents. The Zilkha collection represents one of the last and most accomplished flowerings of this noble New York tradition. Ezra and Cecile Zilkha created exquisite interiors overlooking Central Park in the classic French grand goût that rival the best Parisian townhouses or the great Rothschild châteaux, and their inspired taste now forms the basis of the most important sale of French furniture held in New York for nearly a decade.
