Last Views of a Collection
The Château de Gourdon collection of early 20th-century decorative arts and design, assembled over fifteen years by Laurent Negro, and open to the public for several years at the château, was sold at Christie’s in Paris last March. The sale was the last opportunity to view the collection intact, and more than 17,000 people visited the pre-sale display. Here are some of the exceptional pieces from the collection. For the full story of the collection and the sale, see Modernism’s Summer issue.
