First Look: The Collection of Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem

New York | May

Curated thoughtfully over many years, the collection of Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem highlights the couple's dedication and passion for the arts, with works by Pablo Picasso, Lucio Fontana, and Óscar Domínguez at its core.  

Visionary entrepreneurs, Jan and Maria are first and foremost philanthropists of the highest order whose transformative support has benefitted a wide-ranging host of causes including education, health and scientific research. “I firmly believe that the art of living is the art of giving,” says Maria.  

The collection of 17 exceptional works comes to auction this May during Marquee Week at Sotheby’s New York and, true to the Manetti Shrem spirit, proceeds from the works will benefit the artistic and scientific causes closest to the couple’s hearts.
