Few collections so powerfully capture a moment in time and place, and history, as The David M. Solinger Collection. Assembled with a deft eye, singular passion and pursuit, The Collection represents the greatest achievements in art in both New York and Europe following the Second World War.
The Collection reflects the transatlantic dynamism between the greatest artists of the last century. Offering extraordinary insight into the prolific careers of Dubuffet, Paul Klee, and Fernand Léger, alongside iconic examples by Alberto Giacometti, Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso, the masterworks which comprise The Collection not only trace art history but foretell it.
The Collection also tells the story of David Solinger himself, and his enduring legacy of philanthropy and support for notable institutions inspired by a lifelong passion for art. As a highly successful and pioneering lawyer, his dedication and foresight within the field would lead him to become an expert specializing in the developing worlds of television, advertising and art law, preceding many of his peers.
Works from the David M. Solinger Collection will be offered at Sotheby’s New York in the dedicated David M. Solinger Collection Evening Auction on 14 November, the Modern Day Auction on 15 November, and the Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas Auction where bidding opens on 15 November. Additionally, more works will be offered in Paris’ Art Contemporian Evening sale on 6 December.
