  • Catalogue Essay

    The present work arrives at auction from the collection of the late Dallas-based collectors Sam and Helga Feldman to support the Feldman Foundation, a philanthropic organization supporting various important charities. Committed arts patrons in the Dallas area, the Feldmans offered longstanding support to cultural initiatives in that city and elsewhere. From their early mentorship of then-emerging artist Jean-Michel Basquiat to later support of institutions and organizations including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Feldmans were tireless advocates for the arts and culture. Their longstanding philanthropic support continues today through the Feldman Foundation, which strives to support various important charities in Dallas and elsewhere.

    The seller intends to donate the sale proceeds to the foundation designated in the heading. However, such designation does not provide any tax benefit to the purchaser of this lot.
