Christie's will also hold a series of online sales of lifestyle, entertaining, and luxury items from the Getty Collection, including textiles, handbags, and jewelry owned by Ann Getty. (Her JAR jewels were sold in in Christie's Magnificent Jewels auction in June.) It's all very bittersweet for lifelong friends and members of the far-flung Getty family. They're left with fond memories of a house of extravagant beauty, of parties where the music never ended, and perhaps of falling asleep post-party at 3 am on Ann Getty's red velvet sofa, comforted by a silk brocade pillow hand-woven in Lyon in 1784. Happy memories. Golden days, indeed. Diane Dorrans Saeks, a design editor and lecturer based in San Francisco, is the best-selling author of 25 design books, including the definitive design book on the interiors of Ann Getty, Ann Getty Interior Style (Rizzoli, 2012). She's also the author of the design and style blog The Style Saloniste and has served as the contributing design editor of PaperCity for almost two decades. The Ann & Gordon Getty Collection of 19th- and 20th- Century Masterworks, Decorative Arts, Old Master Paintings and Drawings, Porcelain & Silver, Chinese Works of Art, Books, English & European Furniture will be sold for charity during a four-day and evening sale, October 20 - 23, 2022, New York City. The preview tour schedule includes Los Angeles September 21 - 24 and New York City October 15 - 23.
