NEW YORK – Christie’s will present a series of auctions of Rothschild Masterpieces this fall. These will be the first-ever North American sales of objects belonging to one of the great collecting families in history, an unprecedented opportunity for collectors and connoisseurs. The sales will include a magnificent selection of decorative and fine art that reflects the discernment, art de vivre, and – above all – the taste of this storied dynasty. Rothschild Masterpieces brings together some 600 lots, with a total estimate in excess of $20 million, of furniture, enamels, maiolica, Renaissance jewels, silver and paintings of the highest quality, assembled by two generations of Rothschilds in France, largely during the latter half of the 19th century. Christie’s will conduct this landmark series of auctions at Rockefeller Center, with an evening sale on October 11; two day sales on October 12 and 13, respectively; and a concurrent online sale. An international touring exhibition will take place in Hong Kong May 24-28 and in London July 1-7.
