Sotheby’s Presents the Macklowe Collection, Including Alberto Giacometti SculptureNov 15, 2021 19:00 EST
Displayed in the upcoming Sotheby’s auction are 35 pieces of the 65-piece Macklowe Collection. Real estate developer Harry Macklowe and his wife Linda acquired an extensive art collection from some of the most notable modern artists of the 20th century during their nearly 60-year marriage. The marriage ended in 2016 when Linda filed for divorce. As a resolution to the long and bitter divorce proceedings, a New York Supreme Court judge ordered the couple to sell their art collection and split the profits. Several major pieces from the Macklowe Collection will now come to market. Alberto Giacometti’s 1949 Le Nez sculpture is highlighted in this auction. With a head-like form and elongated nose, the sculpture contains the “Giacometti” and foundry mark inscriptions. Giacometti cast this version of the 1947 original piece in 1965.
Bidders can also consider Andy Warhol’s Nine Marilyns. Based on a 1953 publicity photograph, the 1962 work depicts Marilyn Monroe’s headshot at various exposures. Additionally, pieces by such artists as Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Jasper Johns, and others appear in the catalog. Explore the complete offerings from the Macklowe Collection and register to bid by visiting Sotheby’s.
