Visiting Robert & Aimee Lehrman's Collection
ArtTable members enjoyed a private tour of the Lehrman's collection. Mr. Lehrman invited members to first explore the collection on their own, and to write down any questions that arise. He then led members on a tour, discussing how to view provocative and challenging contemporary art, and regaling members with stories such as purchasing his first works by Jean-Michel Basquiat in a New York City basement in the 1980s. The tour concluded with an exploration of the Lehrman's vast collection of boxes by Joseph Cornell, an American artist who crossed art movements and mediums in creating these assemblage boxes. This visit made clear the Lehrman's passion and absorption with thought-provoking art.
