Hester Diamond: The Life of a Fearless and Visionary Collector

New York | 22–29 January 2021

Hester Diamond was a fearless and visionary collector whose inquisitive nature and bold, distinct point of view is evident throughout her collection. It is in the expressive paintings and sculpture in her apartment, the electric colors of her furniture and the mesmerizing patterns of the textiles she chose. In this video, celebrate Hester Diamond's remarkable life and collection with those who loved and admired her – her sons Michael and David Diamond, her stepdaughter Rachel Kaminsky, collector Jon Landau, Metropolitan Museum of Art Chairman Keith Christiansen, and Sotheby’s Chairman George Wachter. The Collection of Hester Diamond Part I and II will be on offer throughout Masters Week (22–29 January 2021, New York).
