The Collection of Paul F. Walter

    New York – Christie’s announces The Collection of Paul F. Walter will be auctioned across two days of live auctions on September 26-27 with a simultaneous online auction September 21-28. Paul Walter was known as a polymath and scholar, and through collecting and patronage – including leadership roles at MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art among others – he became one of New York’s most respected connoisseurs.

    Comprised of 560 lots across a multitude of disciplines including Post-War & Contemporary art, photographs, prints, sculpture, English furniture and decorative art, and Indian Art – the items come from Walter’s Manhattan apartment and his Sag Harbor home. Estimates range from $1,000 to $1,200,000 and the whole collection is expected to realize in excess of $4.5 million total.
    Laura Paulson, Vice Chairman of the Christie’s Americas Advisory Board, comments:

    “What united Paul’s aesthetic was his true passion for collecting – and it was phenomenal. He would create highly personal environments with great attention to detail and beauty, and this translated into everything he brought into his life.”
