Sotheby's Spotlight: The Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Collection

London | 27 – 28 June 2023

Sotheby’s is honoured to present a selection of outstanding works from The Collection of Phyllis & Jerome Lyle Rappaport as a highlight of the Summer Marquee Auction Season in London. The collection comprises the most celebrated artists and the greatest artistic movements of the Twentieth and Twenty-First centuries, including the pioneering abstraction of Helen Frankenthaler, Sean Scully, Albert Oehlen and Gerhard Richter, as well as the groundbreaking figuration of Georg Baselitz and Pierre Alechinsky.

This pivotal selection of works from the Rappaport Collection illuminates the profound foresight with which Phyllis and Jerry Rappaport built their collection. With a keen and discerning eye for quality, Phyllis and Jerry amassed a collection that bravely invested into intellectual artists before their ascent into the mainstream art market. Valued relationships with preeminent artists and dealers across America and Europe through the 1970s through to the present allowed Phyllis and Jerry to assemble a collection that exemplifies their dedication to and passion for contemporary art.
