A special edition of Christie’s Magazine has been published to mark the sale of the Rockefeller Collection in New York this spring. It is devoted to the varied aspects of the Rockefellers’ achievement, which over four generations has altered the face of New York, left its mark on America, and changed the world in countless ways.

The magazine contains an exclusive interview with David Rockefeller Jr, the head of the family, who gives a personal take on the ideals and the influence of his parents David and Peggy Rockefeller. Award-winning author Lucy Hughes-Hallett explores the world of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, single-minded founder of the Museum of Modern Art. Architecture expert Jonathan Glancey tells the strange history of Rockefeller Center, the towering Manhattan landmark that is the unlikely child of the Depression era. And the friendship and fruitful collaboration of David Rockefeller and MoMA curator Alfred Barr is assessed by historian John Elderfield, who knew both men well.

The magazine, illustrated with photographs from the Rockefeller family archive, also previews some of the highlights of the historic sale: the early Picassos that were once treasured possessions of Gertrude Stein; the masterpieces by Gris and Seurat, Hopper and O’Keeffe, de Kooning and Calder. This commemorative issue documents an American dynasty’s long and impressive tradition of connoisseurship and philanthropy, and celebrates the Rockefellers’ love of art and beauty.
