Heritage Auctions presents Art & Design Speaker Series: William Middleton
William Middleton is the author of Double Vision: The Unerring Eye of Art World Avatars Dominique and John de Menil, the first-ever and definitive biography of the legendary art patrons Dominique and John de Menil. In Houston, the Menils built the Menil Collection, the Rothko Chapel, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel, the Cy Twombly Gallery, and underwrote the Contemporary Arts Museum.
This lecture will be a behind-the-scenes look at the art world of the 20th century, and the enormous influence the Menils wielded through what they collected and the causes they believed in. A book signing will follow the lecture.
