“It is an honor and a privilege to share the collection of Ambassador and Mrs. Felix Rohatyn. Amassed over decades, the collection beautifully embodies the synthesis between European taste and their American vision. The core of the Rohatyn Collection centers on a celebration of French culture—befitting the significance that France held in Ambassador Rohatyn’s life, from his childhood and his career at Lazard, to his eventual return as U.S. ambassador. The collection comprises a striking variety of works, from French Old Master paintings and drawings to Impressionist paintings and Lalanne’s Singes. They are complemented by the lyrical Venetian views by Canaletto and Bellotto, each a masterpiece of stunning quality and importance. The works in the collection converse with one another across different time periods and styles with the sophistication, refinement and elegance that Ambassador and Mrs. Felix Rohatyn embodied themselves.”
- George Wachter, Sotheby’s Chairman and Worldwide Co-Chairman of Old Master Paintings
