From Finance to Fine Art: The Awe-Inspiring Life of Felix Rohatyn

New York | 14 October 2020

In this episode of Expert Voices, Calvine Harvey traces the life and collection of Ambassador Felix Rohatyn. A financier who rescued New York from bankruptcy in the 1970s, Rohatyn had escaped Europe as a teenage boy, his Jewish family in flight from the Nazis. Amassed over decades, Rohatyn’s collection beautifully embodies the synthesis between European taste and their American vision. The Collection of Ambassador and Mrs. Felix Rohatyn will take place on 14 October 2020 in New York.
