Event Details

On May 24, following the marquee modern and contemporary auctions in New York, Sotheby’s will offer the Collection of Amy & Elliot Lawrence. Beginning in the 1950s, the Lawrence’s formed a quintessentially American collection of pre-modern sculpture including classical African, Oceanic, and American Indian art, as well as Pre-Columbian, Southeast Asian, and classical Antiquities. Amy was a scholar, teacher, and therapist; Elliot was a famous bandleader in the late 40s and 50s, who went on to have a legendary career as a music director in TV and film. Together the Lawrence’s explored the world through collecting and assembled an eclectic but harmonious group of objects around the grand piano in their apartment on Central Park West.
