Why the Old Masters Are At Home in 21st-Century Interiors

Launch Slideshow

Since establishing her eponymous firm 25 years ago, Victoria Hagan has been perfecting clients’ homes with an effortless mix of contemporary and traditional elements. Sharing Hagan’s conviction that art can be extremely livable, no matter the period, Sotheby’s tapped the award-winning interior designer to create spaces around works from our Master Paintings Evening Sale. “I’ve always loved Old Masters,” says Hagan. “Working with Sotheby’s, I knew we could really have fun together and show people that it's so natural to live with beautiful paintings of another time.” Click ahead to see how Hagan combined historic art with chic furnishings to create modern contrasts.
