The Pioneering Spirit of Ginny Williams

29 June 2020| New York

With her fiery red hair, intent gaze and radiant Southern charm, Ginny Williams captivated everyone she met. “Ginny saw the Art World as this wonderful and diverse ecosystem, and she loved all parts of it” Sotheby’s Chariman Amy Cappallazzo fondly recalls, “she had a tremendously rich relationship with so many artists”. From her early patronage of Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell to her lifelong friendship with artists including Louise Bourgeois and Ann Hamilton, Ginny was a collector that stood apart. In this video, discover Ginny’s storied collection – which will be offered across a series of sales this summer, beginning with a dedicated evening sale on 29 June.
