JP Morgan: A Collector’s Legacy
Wednesday, January 26 at 5pm EST, Online
John Pierpont Morgan was not only one of the most powerful figures in finance with his name atop one of the world’s leading banking and investment firms, but also a prodigious collector, whose legacy resides in the masterpieces from his extraordinary collection that are now highlights of important museum and private collections. The many facets of his passion for collecting, and the story behind his Asian, ancient, and Western art acquisitions will be explored by our notable panel of scholars and experts.
This online program will consist of brief, illustrated presentations by each panelist, followed by a question-and-answer session.
