Desert Foothills Library - Wildenstein and Rosenberg Fortunes and their Legacy

Saturday, January 13

An Unbelievable Story about two art dealers with galleries in Paris and New York City, one who hated the Nazis, and one who dealt with them, and got rich… Last Year a door opened on the secret history of the art world’s richest and most powerful family, the Wildensteins of Paris and New York City. From the accusations they collaborated with the Nazis, to the legendary contents of their bank vaults in New York and Switzerland, this story explores three generations of a secretive art-dealing dynasty whose $5 billion fortune, Gulf Stream IV, racing stable, 66,000 acre ranch in Kenya, and mansions and galleries in Paris and New York City cannot erase the rancorous legacy handed down from father to sons and grandsons. This true story is waiting to be a movie. Mary F. Cook will tell the story. She is a member of the International Foundation for Art Research, and lectures on the subject of Art Theft and Fraud. All proceeds benefit the Library.
