The December 1 and 2 Palm Beach Collections auction at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will feature furniture, decorative arts and fine art from the collections of Lars Bolander and the estate of Olga Hirshhorn. Kicking off a busy 2016-2017 auction season, the two-day sale will be conducted in Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ West Palm Beach saleroom and online. The preview opens November 18.
Olga Hirshhorn was a significant and generous supporter of the arts, especially in Southwest Florida. Most notably, she served on the Artis—Naples museum board committee and Friends of Art, an auxiliary group of The Baker Museum at Artis—Naples. She donated 400 works from her private collection to the Museum, as well as several sculptures to the Naples Botanical Garden. Mrs. Hirshhorn was also integral to the early stages of the Naples Art Association at The von Liebig Art Center.
