It has come to our attention that the art collected over the years by Heller Ehrman will be dispersed in two separate auctions next month:
“TO: ALL FORMER SHAREHOLDERS AND OTHERS WHO HAVE INQUIRED ABOUT THE DISPOSITION OF HELLER EHRMAN’S ART COLLECTION:
Heller Ehrman’s art collection will be sold by Bonhams & Butterfields in a series of public auctions commencing at 1:00 pm on November 10, 2009 in New York City and 10:00 am on November 17, 2009 in San Francisco (and via simulcast in Los Angeles). All lots will be listed online at Bonhams & Butterfields’ website as the catalog for each auction is published. Absentee bids can be placed online, and telephone bids may be accepted. There is no live internet bidding.
If you would like information about the specific items to be sold, and future auction dates, please contact Bonhams & Butterfields directly.
Please do not contact the Heller Ehrman Dissolution Committee.
Currently only eight items for the New York sale are listed on the Bonhams & Butterfields site – the San Francisco sale items will be posted at a later date.
So start your holiday shopping early and pick up a few bargains. But if that ugly scary clown from the San Francisco lobby shows up just say no.
