The Gilded Age at Auction

Summit Sotheby’s International Realty; the blue sign, classic branding and a worldwide network backed by the 273 year heritage of the Sotheby’s Auction House. Twice monthly I will feature articles of interest from the Auction House.

The Gilded Age was a period of unprecedented economic growth in America, allowing for culture and creativity to flourish. Powerful collectors like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick and Andrew Mellon, amassed important works of European furniture, decorative and fine art, laying the foundation for America’s greatest Institutional collections which have influenced generations of artists, curators, filmmakers, designers and collectors.

Sotheby’s upcoming single-owner sale honors the keen eye and passion of an important American collector who brought together fine examples over the course of decades. With paintings from the Old Masters to the Impressionists, exceptional pieces of 18th and 19th Century continental furniture and decorative art, and Asian art, a grand vision is captured in our forthcoming auction, The Gilded Age Revisited.
