A Collecting Dynasty: The Rockefeller Family

January 20 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

complimentary with a ticket to The Winter Show

As passionate art collectors and philanthropists with an incredible range of interests that spanned the globe, the Rockefeller family, in so many ways, stands as the acme of patronage in this country. Throughout several generations, beginning with Abby and John D Rockefeller, Jr., their unwavering support for the visual arts was critical to the development of cultural institutions focused on the family members’ individual collecting interests, such as Asia Society, the Cloisters, Colonial Williamsburg and its Folk Art Museum, Japan Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. With the participation of two Asian art historians and museum professionals and a dealer of European Art, each of whom personally worked with or for members of the Rockefeller family over the past forty plus years, our discussion will focus on the legacy of multiple generations of Rockefellers, their remarkable collections, and lasting contributions to the world of art and antiques.
